Topic: Medicare eGroup...What Say You

1.  Medicare eGroup...What Say You

Posted 6 days ago
As some of you know, HCCA has the newsletter "Report on Medicare Compliance".

Medicare Compliance is HUGE...not only because it is in the compliance world...but let's also be real...Medicare represents a significant amount of many organizations' reimbursement for provided services.

There are many, many areas in Medicare that are ongoing challenges (EMTALA, CoPs, surveys) as well as ongoing challenges with various topics and issues related to Medicare Compliance that occur on a continuous basis due to changing regulations and requirements.

Question...is it time or is there a need for a Medicare Compliance eGroup?

What say you?

Keep those "I may be interested" posts coming...I think we may be on to something here re: Medicare eGroup.

I want to be careful here because at one point there was interest in a HIPAA Security group but that didn't seem to last too long.

However, Medicare is so much more comprehensive and I think HUGE in its potential for a successful eGroup...so let's see if we can hit critical mass!
