In today’s practice, it isn’t “if” you are going to be audited, but rather, “when” As such, it’s an absolute necessity for today’s practices to understand why audits happen, to know how to properly respond to a records request, and to recognize red flags. In this important training, we will outline real-time issues that actual practices are being targeted for, what they are doing about them, and how to avoid them. As with anything, knowledge is power, and practices must equip with audit preparedness tools! We’ll cover:
• Learn what an audit really is and why payors and organizations conduct compliance and documentation audits
• What to do when you get a records request…yes, this is usually your first clue that an audit is coming!
• Discover step-by-step suggestions for responding to an audit and when to reach out for professional guidance
• Find out how your billing patterns and coding habits may be drawing unwanted third-party attention
