This workshop will prepare Rural Health Clinics with completion of their Annual Program Evaluation.  Cited as the largest error during site reviews, this workshop will walk each attendee through their evaluation and sign-off for completion.

The workshop will also include an update from the Department of Medicaid as well as a very informative session on RHC Compliance and program evaluations from an actual evaluator.

It designed for clinic administrators, clinic managers, billers, clinic financial personnel, and quality assurance officers.
