Online registration is up and running for the Pennsylvania Association of Medical Suppliers' nine-part HME Compliance Connection (https://www.pamsonline.org/events/) webinar slated to begin, January 25.
The conference aims to help HME providers ensure they achieve corporate compliance through a well-defined, written program that is the centerpiece of daily operations throughout the organization and at all staff and management levels.
"With the latest crack-down on fraud and abuse and intensified audit activity, everyone should be redoubling their commitment to compliance programming," said PAMS Executive Director John Shirvinsky. "Doing so will be its own reward. Remember, it is no longer enough to get paid — you need to stay paid!"
Sponsored by a number of state associations, the series offers nine events hosted by nine different speakers from Jan. 25 to Oct. 24 (refer to the PAMS site for specific dates and speakers). Sponsoring state associations include, PAMS, FAMES, NCAMES, NYMEP, MNCHA, NEMED, GAMES, JAMES, OAMES, MAMES, At Home Services, MESA AZMESA, ADMEA, WVMESA and the Association of Indiana Home Medical Equipment Services.
The series is available to members of the sponsoring state associations and non-members alike. Pricing for members of the sponsoring state organizations is $125 per company per location (unlimited participants per location) for each webinar; or $875 per company per location (unlimited participants per location) for nine-webinar series. Pricing for non members is $250 per company per location (unlimited participants per location) for each webinar; or $2,000 per company per location (unlimited participants per location) for 9-webinar series.
The HME Compliance Connection will offer CEUs through the Compliance Certification Board. Providers should submit a list of all personnel who will participate in each webinar and who will require certification of credits earned. According to PAMS, each session will earn an estimated 1.5 CEUs.
