TMA, CMS, Justice Fight ID Theft

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

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.
