With the Affordable Care Act (ACA), health care practitioners have entered an entirely new era of regulatory requirements. Among the biggest effects on the health care industry are:
- Increases in the number of regulations
- Changes in regulations
- Mandatory compliance requirements
- Increased government enforcement actions
Though compliance has always been a responsibility, the penalties for non-compliance or weak compliance are much greater today than ever before.
Operating at Risk
Though the health care industry has been regulated by various government agencies for many years, ACA has created a more complicated and demanding regulatory climate. Health care practitioners who don’t play by the new rules risk:
- Audits and investigations
- Fines and penalties
- Prosecution with potential prison time
- Exclusion from federal health programs
