Outpatient payer medical record audits are skyrocketing. Payers are using audits to uncover money they believe was paid to you in error, and then they want to take it back.
To make matters worse, auditors are incentivized (with money) to recoup every single dollar possible. The more an auditor recoups from your practice, the more money they make. To do this they can dig through 7 years of your patient records during an audit. And, if they find even one error, it can be applied across a portion of your patient base to increase your recoupment amount.
Although you can’t always control whether you’re targeted for a payor audit. You can significantly reduce your risk should you get audited. You can avoid having to pay back your hard-earned reimbursement, stop payer revenue holds, and head off violation allegations that can result in massive penalties.
