A recent report from the Office of Inspector General, when thoroughly evaluated, highlights that you as a healthcare provider, should not accept an audit’s findings at face value. This goes for Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance audits. Hire an experienced health law firm and evaluate what you really should owe, if anything. Often, the carrier will not take the extra step and even ask for an x-ray that is missing and disallow the entire claim. Then, they try to extrapolate this finding over your entire practice for the last several years. A word to the wise! Give me a call or an email and see if we can help you.
