AAOE – Developing Effective Elements of a Compliance Program Webinar


Angela Miller, CHC and President of Medical Auditing Solutions LCC will be discussing the reason you must have a compliance program, the deadline, and the elements of an effective compliance program.  We will discuss how to make these elements effective.  After the Supreme Court Ruling on Thursday, we know PPACA is here to stay so let’s get started with the compliance program development and it can improve your overall business.

This program was offered at the national AAOE meeting in New Orleans in May 2012; however, due to a funeral I had to cut the program short.  It has take a little bit of time to get this setup, but we are ready to make this available by webinar and will still have 1 hr AAPC credit.  Also keep in mind, you can ask other credentialing organizations if they will consider CEUs for the certification you have.  You will need proof of registration & attendence, this printed out with the learning objectives, and possibly the course material (which may be the materials since they will not be posted on AAOE’s website).  They can only say No.  If you registered for the New Orleans conference, please mention that as there will be no charge to my understanding.  For those of you interested that are not AAOE members or did not attend the Annual Conference, you may still purchase the attendance below.

Please contact AAOE direct about registration at Register Now

This program will be about 1.5 hours in length.

Is Your Credit Card Terminal PCI HIPAA Compliant?


World Pay is a company that I have come across that has some really good educational information for clients and perspective clients on Payment Care Industry or PCI Compliance.  HIPAA extends to protect the financial information of clients.  It is important that you have policies regarding your PCI practices or accepting and processing credit card payments.  If your credit card processing company helping you?  Is your credit card terminal PCI Compliant, feel free to check the lists for WPVeriFone EOL Products and WPHypercom T7Plus End of Life that have reached”End of Life” or are no longer compliant.

A company can be out of PCI compliance in two ways 1) the terminal they use does not meet criteria and 2) through processes of gathering, transmitting and storing data.

Let me tell you what impressed me about World Pay.  They have a terminal that is end to end encrypted to protect financial data.  This company has a tremendous about of education materials on this topic. There fee of $14.99/month of PCI compliance includes 24/7 customer service, guidance to get your policies and procedures in place, a third party vendor to provide PCI Accreditation and Certification for that process only, and $30K of indemnity coverage when using their standard terminal or $100K indemnity coverage if your are using their end to end encrypted terminal, they help with negotiations with visa, master card, etc., if their is a breach.  Additional medical audit and HIPAA breach defense coverage may be obtained through Jim Patterson at Agape Insurance

It is important that you ensure your credit card processing machine and process is HIPAA compliant.  Educate yourself and make an informed decision.  I have included links to PCI websites for further explanation of PCI Compliance.

What will you need to have a free PCI Compliance review provided?

1.  Your Credit Card Statement; Does your statement say “non-validation of PCI” with a fee?

2.  Name/Model# of the Terminal(s) being used

3.  Do you have policies and procedures for use, storage and transmission?

4.  Mention this blog from Medical Auditing Solutions

How do you get this complimentary PCI Compliance Review?
