Ousting the ‘F-Word’ From Your Practice
By Robin Rumancik


You do everything you can to keep your patients safe and healthy. But are you sure your practice is safe from fraud and abuse?

Make sure you keep the “f-word” out of your practice.

Don’t wait for a costly government audit – or a criminal charge – to come knocking. Check out the Texas Medical Association’s e-book, Fraud and Abuse Prevention Simplified, which can help you learn to protect both your practice and patients.

The e-book explains the laws and regulations on Medicare and Medicaid fraud and abuse as well as how the government is enforcing those laws.

The book, available through the TMA Education Center, also includes a toolkit for deterrence, and provides you with information on what to do in case you are audited.

Fraud and Abuse Prevention Simplified has been accredited for 4 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM, and 4 ethics credits.

For more help addressing fraud and abuse, visit the TMA Compliance Center, contact TMA Practice Consulting about compliance services, and explore our related CME programming.

As with most of TMA’s CME programming, Fraud and Abuse Prevention Simplified is free for TMA members and their practice staff thanks to a generous sponsorship by the Texas Medical Association Insurance Trust.
