Payers have made it clear that they’ll be pushing harder than ever to reclaim reimbursement that they believe has been paid to you in error. Both Medicare and private payers have added increased audit activities to their work plan to accomplish this.
Getting selected for an audit can significantly decrease your reimbursement due to delayed payments. And failed audits can lead to large recoupments from years of claims or even referrals to law enforcement agencies. The only way for you to avoid and/or survive a costly audit nightmare is to master these new requirements.
Remember, that ignorance of billing and coverage requirements will not prevent you from paying hefty fines.
Fortunately, audit expert, Kelly Grahovac, MBA, can help. Simply register for her upcoming online training on to get EXACTLY what you need to protect your practice from impending payer audits. During this 60-minute training, you’ll receive step-by-step advice to help you significantly reduce your chances of being audited.
