HBMA Congratulates NCDS Medical Billing On Compliance Accreditation

NCDS Medical Billing is recognized by the program to protect patient privacy, prevent medical billing fraud, and comply with federal regulations.
CLEVELAND - May 16, 2024 - PRLog -- (Laguna Beach) – Today the Healthcare Business Management Association (HBMA) announced that NCDS Medical Billing is now accredited under the HBMA Compliance Accreditation Program for revenue cycle management (RCM) companies (a.k.a., medical billing and medical practice management companies) and offered its congratulations. The HBMA Compliance Accreditation Program is designed to assess compliance with a range of federal healthcare industry regulations, including provisions to protect patient privacy under HIPAA, promote cybersecurity, and prevent fraud, waste, and abuse in medical billing.

NCDS Medical Billing is an RCM company near Cleveland, Ohio that serves healthcare providers in 22 states. "NCDS is thrilled to continue our tradition of excellence in compliance, privacy, and security by achieving this prestigious standard for the sixth consecutive year. We are immensely grateful for the unwavering commitment of our compliance team and the invaluable support from HCP and HBMA that have enabled us to sustain this accreditation," stated Mick Polo, President of NCDS Medical Billing.

"HBMA understands that medical billing and revenue cycle management companies operate in a complex, highly regulated profession, fraught with high consequences for fraud, waste and abuse.  By achieving HBMA compliance accreditation, NCDS Medical Billing has demonstrated by independent evaluation that their practices surpass federal requirements to protect confidential patient medical information, secure their data systems, and prevent fraud," said Jennifer Hicks, president of HBMA.

The HBMA Compliance Accreditation Program is the result of the RCM industry coming together within HBMA to establish a process to independently assess the participating company's program to fulfill its obligation to meet regulatory requirements. The HBMA Compliance Accreditation Program assesses compliance with HIPAA and with Health and Human Service Office of Inspector General compliance standards on fraud, waste and abuse; the Stark Law, which is designed to prevent conflicts of interest by medical providers in their prescribed patient care; federal Anti-kickback law; and the OIG work plan. The assessment under the HBMA Compliance Accreditation Program includes a comprehensive evaluation of the policies and practices of RCM companies with respect to employee training; security risks, including the security of confidential patient health information; documentation storage and handling; practices to promote compliance with federal regulations; disaster and emergency preparedness plans; and human resources practices, including background check procedures and onboarding.
