Count on more than two decades of diligent oversight, nonpartisan collaboration and training — working behind the scenes to turn data into action.
The Government Consulting team at Bland & Associates, P.C. has written the guide on audit protocols for accountable care organizations to promote consistent compliance across hundreds of agencies and states. We were among the first CPA firms contracted to work with the US Department of Health and Human Services to audit accountable care organizations and comprehensive primary care practices, and we have adapted to administrative oversight and legislation that became the Affordable Care Act in 2010. The experienced team at Bland & Associates now acts mainly as an extension of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to help monitor organizations that administer, manage or receive funding.
We offer CPAs, auditors experienced in compliance testing, technology designers and Certified Fraud Examiners (CFEs) to conduct a variety of contracted work. We serve our government clients as a prime contractor as well as a subcontractor.
We have provided guidance on communications for internal and external audiences, such as organization staff and their timely communications to the public. Our innovative models for payment and service delivery, analysis — even creation of tools like dashboards — have helped CMS improve processes and efficiency.
Our work is about building a more sustainable health care system in the United States. That means helping tax dollars stretch farther by identifying potential fraud, waste and abuse, as well as promoting best practices in care and benefits delivery.
