A functioning Compliance Program is the first line of defense for a Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) Accountable Care Organization (ACO) to prevent, detect and correct noncompliance. An effective ACO Compliance Program is not a static document, but rather it is proactive, responsive, and changes according to the needs of the organization. When effective, an ACO’s Compliance Program sets compliance standards and assists in identifying risk, ensuring open lines of communication, implementing compliance training to enforce standards through well-publicized disciplinary guidelines, preventing the ACO and participants from employing individuals sanctioned by the government, conducting internal monitoring and auditing and, when offenses are reported or detected, promptly responding to threats through corrective action and required reporting.

Join us as we introduce the MSSP ACO, the five (5) required elements that constitute an effective ACO compliance program under applicable Federal regulations and recommend what specific steps a Compliance Officer can take to assure adherence.

Upon completion of this webcast, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the MSSP ACO, its history, scope, purpose as well as general regulatory and operational requirements;
