2024 Fraud, Waste & Abuse and HIPAA Compliance Program Updates

PAAS National® continuously monitors legislative and regulatory changes that may impact your Fraud, Waste & Abuse and HIPAA Compliance Program. We keep a close eye on enforcement from the Department of Justice, Office of Inspector General, State Attorney Generals, and Office for Civil Rights to help ensure the program meets interpretative standards. Furthermore, PAAS works to keep pace with Pharmacy Benefit Managers as they continue to add credentialing requirements that can be extremely difficult, and a significant nuisance, to independent pharmacies.

The PAAS National® FWA/HIPAA Compliance Program has implemented changes to ensure pharmacies continue to have a robust program in place. PAAS FWA/HIPAA compliance members can login to the member portal to view the 2024 FWAC and HIPAA Updates.

Administrators should review all Compliance tasks (located in the left-hand navigation on the PAAS Member Portal) at least annually to keep the program up-to-date and in compliance. Section 2.6 Updates of Policies and Procedures of your manual contains information on maintaining open lines of communication and the distribution of changes.

If you’re not a member of PAAS’ FWA/HIPAA compliance program, contact us today at (608) 873-1342 or info@paasnational.com to add the program for a discounted rate.
