Are You Ready for Medicare Audits?


Preparing for "Outside" audits such as RAC and other audits by government agencies and claims payers

The healthcare industry is now facing outside audits by government agencies and claims payers. This includes RAC audits that have resulted in significant amounts of payment reductions for many providers. These “Outside” audits are very intensive in nature often involving significant resources to handle and meet a large volume of requests in a short period of time. The audit response and appeal processes are complex requiring organizations to prepare themselves to mitigate the risk of losing legitimate earnings.

Join us for a webinar that will provide an insight to Healthcare providers on ways to prepare themselves for outside audits. The webinar covers the following:

  • Why should Healthcare providers bother to prepare for the audit
  • With more audits coming in the way what are some of the risks, providers need to look at
  • Strategies to tackle Auditors
  • Role of technology in preparing organizations for “Outside” audits
