You can report any concern at any time to the Compliance Hotline at
15 The Compliance Hotline The Compliance Hotline is a toll-free number operated by an outside vendor, not by GHS associates. You can call any time, from anywhere. You do not have to say who you are. The call is not recorded. The hotline provides you with a report number and a PIN number. You can use these numbers to follow up and get additional information. The Office of Corporate Compliance & HIPAA Administration investigates all issues and responds to the caller via the outside vendor.
16 GHS Non-Retaliation Policy GHS has a strict non-retaliation policy for any associate who reports a problem. You will not be fired or sanctioned in any way for reporting a concern in good faith, even if it turns out there isn t a problem. However, you cannot avoid discipline by reporting an incident in which you are involved. You will not be fired or sanctioned for reporting an unresolved quality of care concern to: The Joint Commission (JC), Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), or A state agency. Retaliation is not tolerated and subject to discipline up to and including termination.
17 Additional Reporting Options If a concern has not been resolved internally through internal reporting options, the Compliance Hotline, and/or the chief compliance officer you can also report a concern to: The Joint Commission (JC), Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and Government enforcement entities: The Office of Inspector General (OIG) of the Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Justice (DOJ).
18 Reporting Quality Concerns You may report internal quality or safety concerns to your manager, and to other departments, by using any of the following tools as appropriate: Patient/Visitor Variance Report, Form # 1836 report of unusual or unexpected patient or visitor event or patient care concerns.

19 Fraud, Waste, and Abuse Laws Fraud, Waste, and Abuse (FWA) Laws include the: False Claims Act, Anti-Kickback Statute, Physician Self Referral Statute, Exclusion Statute, and Civil Monetary Penalties Law. The government requires FWA training for all new associates and FWA training for all associates on an annual basis.
20 Fraud, Waste, Abuse, cont d Fraud Healthcare fraud refers to receiving or obtaining a benefit by an intentional misrepresentation or concealment of material facts. Waste Waste includes incurring unnecessary costs as a result of deficient management, practices, or internal controls. Abuse Abuse is similar to fraud but there is no evidence that the act was intentional. Abuse includes excessive or improper use of government resources.
21 Examples of Fraud Billing for services or supplies not furnished. Duplicate billing: Billing for services already covered by another claim. Unbundling: Billing separately for services that should be a single service. Billing for services not supported by documentation in the medical record. Falsely reporting diagnoses or procedures to maximize or increase payment. Falsifying information on records. Offering or accepting bribes, payment or incentives in exchange for healthcare referrals.
22 Examples of Abuse Providing services that are not medically necessary. Providing services that do not meet professionally recognized standards. Providing services that are not fairly priced.
23 False Claims Act Prohibits the submission of false or fraudulent claims for payment to Medicare and Medicaid. Fines for False Claims Act violations can be up to three times the program s loss, plus $11,000 per claim. You can be punished if you act with deliberate ignorance or reckless disregard of the truth. This means you cannot hide your head in the sand and avoid liability.
24 Anti-Kickback Statute Prohibits asking for, offering, or receiving anything of value in exchange for referrals of federal healthcare program business. The Anti-Kickback Statute applies to both payers and recipients of kickbacks. Just asking for or offering a kickback could violate the law. A kickback can be anything of value, not just cash! As a GHS associate, you may not ask for, offer or take anything of value in exchange for patient referrals.
25 Anti-Kickback Statute, cont d GHS does not pay or offer to pay anyone for patient referrals. This includes: Colleagues, Colleagues include GHS officers, associates, medical and affiliated staff, volunteers, vendors, agents, and anyone else affiliated with GHS or those with whom you have professional contact. Physicians, and Other persons or entities.
26 Physician Self-Referral Statute The Physician Self-Referral Statute is sometimes called the Stark Law. Stark prohibits physicians from referring Medicare or Medicaid patients to entities for designated health services where they have a financial relationship, unless an exception applies. Financial relationships covered by this law include ownership/investment interests, as well as compensation relationships. This law applies to physician financial relationships and those of their immediate family members.
27 Exclusion Statute Under the Exclusion Authorities, individuals and entities can be excluded from participation in the federal healthcare programs. Some refer to exclusions as a financial death sentence because excluded persons and entities may not receive payment for treating any Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries. GHS conducts routine exclusion checks. GHS does not employ, grant or renew privileges to, or contract with, any individual or entity who is under sanction or excluded from participation in federal healthcare programs.
28 Civil Monetary Penalties Law Penalties range from $10,000 to $50,000 per violation. The government may seek civil monetary penalties for a wide variety of fraudulent and abusive conduct in addition to: Exclusion from the Medicare and Medicaid program, Criminal conviction, and Jail time.
29 Whistleblower Provisions State and federal governments permit private citizens to file lawsuits on behalf of the government when fraud is suspected. This is the qui tam or whistleblower provision. GHS does not retaliate against any associate who files a qui tam action or other lawful acts such as assisting in a False Claims Act investigation. GHS encourages associates to report suspected fraud internally so that we can investigate and immediately correct any problems.
30 Laws and Regulations GHS has policies and procedures in place to promote compliance with all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations set forth by the: Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (OIG). Federal Drug Administration (FDA). Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). Department of Community Health (Georgia Medicaid). Office for Civil Rights (OCR).

GHS associates must assure that documentation in the medical record supports the services billed to any payor. GHS can bill only for services ordered, provided and documented.
32 Charging, Billing, Coding, cont d Charging for a service that is not ordered, provided or documented in the record is inappropriate. It is not acceptable to fix the record to make it match the bill. Falsifying medical records is grounds for disciplinary action up to and including termination. See GHS Discipline Policy (HR ). See GHS Charging, Coding and Billing Compliance Policy #
