Medical Billing Compliance
AHS endorses and fosters a culture of compliance in all phases of company operations. The goal is for each client to obtain the full reimbursement to which they are legally and ethically entitled, and to do so in a manner that fully complies with both the letter and the spirit of all applicable regulations and guidelines.
The Compliance Program is led by the Compliance and Privacy Officer, who is an experienced member of senior management. The program has been designed using guidelines from the Compliance Program Guidance for Third-Party Medical Billing Companies issued by the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), HIPAA Administrative Simplification, and ASA.
ICD-10 Implementation Roadmap
As guidelines evolve and new ones emerge, the AHS Compliance Program stays current. The Compliance Officer and staff members, including each Certified Professional Coder, regularly participate in seminars on compliance matters in order to stay abreast of developments and interpretations.
AHS clients are secure in the knowledge that the Compliance Program, the Compliance Manual, employee training and the companyâ€™s Code of Conduct â€” which follows OIG guidelines â€” are in place and followed, resulting in an overall culture of compliance.
