Course Description

The U.S. healthcare industry faces a serious ailment of its own. It is riddled with fraud and abuse to the tune of more than $100 billion annually — three to 10% of all healthcare costs — according to the Government Accounting Office.

This waste of resources has led to the healthcare industry being forced to adhere to numerous laws regarding fraud: the Stark Law, False Claims Act, the Anti-Kickback Statute, HIPAA and the Prescription Drug Marketing Act. In addition to this robust legislation, government agencies and trade organizations have invoked a long and complex list of guidelines and codes to be followed. Compliance to all of these laws, guidelines and codes presents a huge and stressful challenge to organizations and employees in the healthcare field.
