Webinar/Audio Conference FAQs

Medicare Audits are on the Rise. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services estimates that more than $34 billion each year - more than 10 percent of all fee-for-service payments within the Medicare system - is wasted through improper payments. To help solve that problem, the government established Recovery Audit Contractors (RACs) in five states as a pilot program in 2005. The RAC program was so successful, it has expanded to all 50 states. In addition to RAC audits, there are numerous other types of audits and investigations, CERT, SMRC, Z-Pic, OIG, Pre-payment, Post-payment….it can make your head spin and your stomach hurt. What are the different Medicare audits? How can you create bullet-proof policies and procedures to survive an audit and minimize damage? What should you do if you are audited? All this and more will be discussed in this informative and relevant presentation.

  • Get an overview of different types of billing companies and how their services and costs are structured.
