The Nashville Business Journal is excited to announce the Best Places to Work finalists for 2015.
Employees of nominated companies were asked to complete an online survey conducted by Quantum Workplace. The employee survey measures 10 key engagement categories, including team effectiveness, trust in senior leaders and manager effectiveness.
Fines totaling $9 million were levied in 2014 against 75 healthcare companies, according to ProviderTrust, a company that offers exclusion list monitoring software and services. That's up from 2013's $3.5 million in fines that hit 45 companies.
Most CEOs and CFOs of hospitals, ASCs and long-term care facilities are not aware of the expanded exclusion criteria - or the huge financial penalties for employing people who are currently on state/federal exclusion lists. There's now a well-funded group of OIG investigators whose job is to enforce PPACA and levy fines.
Anyone who is directly – or even indirectly – reimbursed by Medicare is under scrutiny.
Prior to 2011, most healthcare organizations checked the federal exclusion lists at the employee’s time of hire or when a provider’s license was up for renewal. Now they’re strongly encouraged to check monthly – not just the OIG and GSA exclusion lists, but for all 50 states as well.
As part of the 900-page Affordable Care Act, new rules increase penalties if techs, nurses or even doctors see patients while their license is flagged in another state.
