Billing Compliance

UC San Diego Health’s Billing Compliance component offers education and training modules to reduce the potential for coding and billing errors in billing for professional fee services and hospital institutional services and promote appropriate clinical documentation by our physicians, clinical providers and other licensed technical staff to support the medical necessity for each billed service. UCSD Health takes pride in complying with the laws and regulations that govern these activities and we know that each of you will work hard to support this compliance effort. We want to advise you and our coding /billing contractors  and agents of federal legislation regarding the federal false claims act, administrative remedies for false claims and statements, the state false claims act and whistleblower protections under these laws. These laws, including our State Whistleblower Protection laws, play an important role in detecting fraud, waste and abuse in federal health care programs.
