Medical billing is an area of significant compliance risk for health institutions and providers.  Areas such as billing and coding, reasonable and necessary services and appropriate documentation have been identified as risk areas by enforcement agencies.  Additionally, the Office of the Inspector General for the Department of Health and Human Services has stated:

 

"The proper education and training of corporate officers, managers, employees, physicians and other health care professionals, and the continual retraining of current personnel at all levels, are significant elements of an effective compliance program."1


With this in mind, both the University of Texas Systemwide Compliance Office and Medical Billing Compliance Advisory Committee have committed significant resources for education and training on the topic of medical billing.
This site provides links to recorded presentations given within the University of Texas System on topics relating to medical billing.
