E/M Chart Auditing for Physician Services

You can pay a consultant to do it, wait for an audit letter, or take a proactive stance and implement ongoing self-audit procedures.

5 Reasons to Attend

  1. Ensure that chart documentation supports the claim submitted.
  2. Improve aptitude for cross-checking and code selection.
  3. Discover missed revenue opportunities when auditing charts based on fact.
  4. Receive professional tips and self-check forms to help you audit like a pro.
  5. In an era of increased audit probability, it is wise to take a proactive stance.
