How to Respond to Audits

Audio-Conference Description

Home health, hospice, private duty, and HME providers are routinely subject to audits of all kinds; including by MACs, SMRCs, RACs, and UPICS.  The purpose of this teleconference is to help providers respond successfully to all types of audits.  What is the first step providers should take to respond to audits?  What should providers do if they find deficiencies in documentation?  Can providers supplement and/or amend records before submission?  If so, how should providers do so?  What about summaries of records?  Are they useful and, if so, how?  What should be included in summaries?  Providers continue to take a beating from auditors, so now is the time to understand the best way to beat them.  There will be plenty of time for questions during the teleconference and extensive handouts will be provided.
