Use of electronic medical records may increase risk of inaccurate and/or incomplete statements; inadequate pre-billing audits may increase claim errors that are being identified on payer audits; increasing incentives for whistleblower claims increase vulnerability. That means, payer audits are increasing.
Our speaker, Caral Edelberg, CPC, CPMA, CAC, CCS-P, CHC, will walk you through common problems, solutions and ways to audit records and improve audit outcomes. You’ll understand how your internal audit processes can catch errors before claims go out. She’ll present examples of records from actual audits with explanation of how problems occurred and how they can be addressed on appeal. And remember, appeals and rebuttals must address coding issues AND medical necessity/patient risk factors equally.
Here's a glimpse at some of the issues Caral will address:
