Fraud and Abuse Compliance

Through a collaboration with the HealthCare Compliance Association, the American Hospital Association (AHA) is pleased to provide our members with a new forum for health care professionals involved in all aspects of regulatory compliance.

In an effort to help health care professionals understand and meet the expectations of those who grant money, pay for services, regulate the industry, etc. HCCA has established a comprehensive source of information. Health care compliance includes numerous issues such as reimbursement, grant accounting, managed care, OSHA and Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations regulations, licensure, and due diligence to prevent and detect violations of the law.

Information available:

  • the basic seven elements of every compliance program,
  • links to the various compliance guidance published by the Department of Health and Human Service Office of Inspector General
