One of the core values of Communities of Care is High Ethical Standards, and a crucial way we express this value is by ensuring honest and accurate billing and accounting.
Medical fraud, waste, and abuse (FWA) is a rampant problem in the home healthcare industry. This presentation outlines how some nursing agencies will fake documentation and assessments or discharge and re-admit patients to receive unearned benefits. In addition, the FBI and OIG-DHS have more information on common healthcare fraud practices and how to avoid them.
We always ensure accurate billing at Communities of Care. We explain our zero-tolerance policy towards fraud during the orientation process, and we have passed our many state audits with flying colors every time.
We are committed to making a measurable difference in the lives of our clients every day and doing it with complete transparency. If you want to learn more about us, here is a resource. If you want to join our growing team, you can apply for our open positions or email us.
