CHA has released the 10th edition of the Hospital Compliance Manual, written specifically to help California’s hospital compliance officers, chief financial officers, legal counsel, and risk managers stay abreast of pertinent state and federal laws. The manual focuses on high-risk compliance issues and addresses the key components of an effective compliance plan.

Written by lead author Lloyd Bookman, Esq., CHA’s Lois Richardson, Esq., and a team of legal experts from Hooper, Lundy & Bookman, PC, the 2019 Hospital Compliance Manual has been updated to help hospitals:

  • Avoid payment denials and accidental false claims with information on new Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services coding and documentation requirements
  • Comply with Medi-Cal’s revised treatment authorization request and appeal processes
  • Meet pricing transparency requirements related to chargemasters and mandates to post information in a machine-readable format
  • Stay current with procedural changes at the California Department of Public Health’s Centralized Applications Unit and legislatively imposed time frames
