Minimizing Audit Risks
As a part of the Office of Inspector General's (OIG) recommendations for individual providers, offices must develop a compliance program. Performing self auditing and monitoring programs are important tools of OIG Compliance. Self audits minimize third party payers' reviews and helps avoid one of the compliance risks identified by the OIG, which focuses on coding and documentation requirements.
Doctors and staff can easily administer self-monitoring programs by following a few basic steps and filing out a simple report. By performing these audits on a routine basis, your office can avoid costly mistakes and learn how to prevent a major audit.
The 'Forensic Audits' class teaches offices how to do an in-depth audit and instructs the clinics on the key points on what to look for that may be putting flags on your accounts. Staff is welcome to attend the doctor's C.E. course on Saturday (with or without their doctors) to learn these valuable audit issues. See the TX CE Hrs tab for locations, times and cost.
