    With the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and its amendment in 2010, Congress for the first time mandated that medical practices adopt a compliance plan. Not doing so exposes a practice to potential False Claims Act liability for failure to prevent or identify improper federal health care plan claims and payments.


    This guide will help you and your practice define the roles of a compliance officer and develop and implement a compliance plan that will work for small, medium, and large groups.
