Every day, medical practices just like you face unannounced, onsite audits because regulators suspect wrongful billing or other misconduct. And the truth is, unannounced site visits are on the rise with Medicare, state agencies and even private payers like the Blues. In fact, federal and state fraud units have more money than ever earmarked for targeted onsite investigations.
But unannounced visits can come from unexpected places. For example, a patient complaint may generate an onsite review by local licensing agencies. Employee issues or medication can trigger visits from the state or federal health departments, employment discrimination units or hazardous waste agencies.
The bottom line: You and your entire medical office staff must be ready for an onsite visit at ANY time. In this audioconference, expert speaker and healthcare attorney Wayne J. Miller, Esq., will discuss the basic ground rules for typical non-criminal surprise auditor and other health care regulator visits. Learn pre-visit diligence, as well as proper conduct during the visit that’ll keep you out of the red -- and your facility’s public image squeaky clean.
Here’s a sampling of what you’ll learn:
