Behavioral Health Compliance
Compliance is Up to All of Us
The Mental Health Compliance Office assists the department in adhering to Medi-Cal and Medicare regulations that require mental health plans to have a compliance plan designed to guard against fraud and abuse. The office also ensures adherence to federal health care program requirements related to mental health services. The Compliance Plan’s scope serves programs within the Behavioral Health System of Care.
The Compliance Office develops and implements policies, procedures and practices to assist in these efforts. The responsibilities of the office include analysis of departments’ risk, oversight and monitoring of audits and investigations related to compliance and coordinating training and education.
The office investigates and resolves compliance issues while promoting awareness and understanding of the positive ethical and moral practices consistent with the department’s mission and those required by applicable laws, regulations, rules and guidelines.
