Audio-Conference Description
Home care providers of all types - including home health agencies, private duty agencies, hospices and HME companies - remain targets of audits by various regulators, including but certainly not limited to United Program Integrity Contractors (UPICs). The results of these audits can be devastating because they may threaten the ability of providers to remain in business, especially when overpayments are extrapolated to millions of dollars. Audits of all types must be taken seriously and providers must take action to close audits as quickly as possible! The first thing providers must do is to review records requested by auditors. What must providers do when reviews show deficiencies in documentation? When and how can providers amend or supplement records prior to submission to auditors? Should providers send summaries to auditors along with patient records? The purpose of this teleconference is to give providers detailed steps to follow to avoid adverse consequences of audits. Examples of common issues targeted by auditors will be provided and there will be time for questions and answers.
