Virtually all healthcare providers who submit claims or bills to third party payers, including Medicare, will potentially be audited at some point. The financial risks and headaches associated with an audit can – but do not have to be – daunting. While it is not certain what event will trigger an audit, there are proactive steps that any physician or medical practice can take to reduce the likelihood of an audit:
- Review and analyze the Comprehensive Error Rate Testing study outcome to ascertain your use of billing codes that are frequently billed in error so that, if necessary based on your use of such billing codes, you can verify them and ensure appropriate supporting documentation.
- Using the government’s website, www.cms.gov, compare your use of codes and modifiers to other healthcare providers in your particular specialty.
- Conduct an effective internal audit based on claim and chart reviews to ascertain coding duplication, errors, or inadequate documentation of billed codes and remedy all such deficiencies.
- Stay current on all updated coding regulations
Other risks factors applicable to your particular practice area or specialty may warrant additional proactive steps your business should take to minimize the risks of being audited. If you receive an audit notice of any type, it is important to self-assess your risk in a comprehensive and accurate way to determine the appropriate defensive steps that will mitigate the potential financial loss.
