Changing demographics mean there are more patients than ever, yet hospice and home care agencies are chasing after fewer referrals, because of increased competition. Providers feel significant pressure to identify and develop effective marketing strategies. This can produce the appearance of success in terms of increased referrals and revenues, but overall can lead to greater compliance risks.
There are numerous compliance risks in marketing and relationships with referral sources. For example, common business marketing ideas – discounts, coupons, rewards to strong referral sources – are illegal under federal law. Marketing strategies must be carefully analyzed to avoid fines, penalties, False Claims Act actions, and criminal prosecutions. Agencies must also understand the applicable fraud and abuse rules that impact compliance efforts. Noncompliance can result in a marketing “success” becoming a source of significant civil penalties and even criminal prosecutions. This webinar will cover common pitfalls and areas of government scrutiny to ensure consistent, compliant marketing.
