Learn how to protect your practice and patients by preventing fraud through identity theft at a two-hour seminar in Dallas on April 17. TMA, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the U.S. Department of Justice, and the Senior Medicare Patrol are sponsoring the seminar.
The seminar, Fraud: Protect Your Practice and Your Patients, begins at 11:30 am in the Dallas Methodist Medical Center's Hitt Auditorium, 1441 N. Beckley Ave. It offers 1 hour of free ethics continuing medical education. Speakers will include CMS and Justice Department officials.
Registration is required. For more information, email RODALFM@cms.hhs.gov.
And if you don't like that topic, time, or place, check out TMA's daylong Commit to Compliance seminar on May 3 at the TMA building in Austin. Effective October 2012, federal health programs, including Medicare and Medicaid, require physicians to establish a compliance plan that can effectively detect "criminal, civil, and administrative violations." Don't get caught unprepared! Attend this seminar to learn how to develop and implement a compliance plan.
