Adelita Orefice Earns Certification in Healthcare Compliance

Providence, RI - The Compliance Certification Board (CCB)® announced that Adelita (Lita) Orefice has successfully completed the Certified in Healthcare Compliance (CHC) Examination, thus earning the "CHC" designation. Since the examination originated in June 2000, only 4,500 individuals have earned this professional credential.

Healthcare compliance is a relatively new industry, born out of the government's increasing focus on Medicare fraud. Compliance professionals come from a variety of backgrounds including coding, medical records, nursing, medical practice, law and government. Regardless of background, compliance professionals are tasked with assuring that healthcare providers follow federal, state and local regulations that govern the delivery of healthcare.

CCB President Debbie Troklus, noted, "The United States government constantly updates the laws and regulations surrounding Medicare to ensure proper billing and to eliminate fraud. These new regulations demand professionals who both understand the new regulations and how to implement programs to ensure compliance within their companies."

The Compliance Certification Board (CCB) was founded by the Health Care Compliance Association (HCCA)® in 1998. It develops criteria for the determination of competence in the practice of healthcare compliance.

Lita is an attorney in Barrett & Singal’s Providence office where she focuses on healthcare and corporate law. Lita is a member of the Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Connecticut bars. You can find her on LinkedIn.
