Compliance Quarterly Newsletter

The Compliance Quarterly is our compliance newsletter which is distributed to all practice plan personnel on a quarterly basis. The Compliance Quarterly provides personnel with informative articles on various compliance topics such as HIPAA, coding, documentation, general compliance, the OIG, recent compliance-related stories from the news, and many others. It provides reminders and tips on being compliant in your daily work.

Additionally, the newsletter serves as quarterly compliance training, and offers the opportunity to gain training credits toward the biannual 2 hours of compliance training required by the UBMD Compliance Plan. Each newsletter includes a short, 5-question quiz pertaining to the articles in the newsletter. A successfully completed quiz is worth .25 hours of training (only current year quizzes can be completed for credit).

We always welcome topic ideas for future newsletter articles. Contact Sue Marasi if you have any suggestions.

Below are current and past issues of our compliance newsletters, with some of the main topics listed. It never hurts to look back to review and refresh!
