Community Health Systems Corporate Integrity Agreement

If your company has committed a compliance breach and needs to enter into a Corporate Agreement (CIA), we can help you set up compliance organization structures and compliance procedures to reduce the risk of recurring violations and meet CIA requirements. When your health organization enters into a CIA with the DOJ, it usually needs to enter into a contract with an Independent Verification Organization (IRO) to ensure independent verification of your organization`s compliance with the CIA`s terms. BKD serves as an IRO for organizations by combining knowledge and expertise on corporate integrity agreements, compliance program operations, and coding and billing audits, to achieve low-cost, proven results that meet CIA requirements.
