Reminder to Update Your Policies and Procedures for 2006

12/01/2005

The purpose of this alert is to highlight new operational and regulatory requirements that will become effective in 2006 and likely require changes and updates to your medical practice’s or health care facility’s current policies, procedures and bylaws.  These requirements are drawn from the Medicare Part D provisions of the Medicare Modernization Act of 2003 and related regulations, the  2006 Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) Patient Safety Goals and Accreditation Standards, Medicare billing and reimbursement policies, TrailBlazer Health local coverage determinations and notices and the recent changes to the Texas Department of State Health Services (TDSHS) licensing rules for Ambulatory Surgical Centers (ASCs).
