Certified Professionals with the skills, education, and experience you need.
Coding and Reimbursement Audits
We employ Certified Professional Coders and Certified Medical Auditors who have the skill, education, and experience to analyze your documentation and code selection. Our certified professionals identify areas where revenue is not being maximized. At the completion of each audit, we will provide you with a summary of the audit findings and collaborate with you to improve receivables while maintaining compliance with applicable regulations.
You may be asking yourself, “Why should I have an audit?” Audits help to analyze the practice coding, charges, and payments to provide feedback as to the efficiency of the practice’s current work to revenue capture ratio. We have done audits where the providers’ coding and documentation is adequate, leaving the provider with a sense of security that the billing and documentation will pass the test of a payer audit. Payer audits can leave the practice with headaches and large fines. External audits can prevent large fines and increase reimbursement. In the years past, we have performed audits for providers and identified opportunities for providers to improve their code selection and documentation to maximize their revenue.
- Have you not had an audit in a few years and would like a general overview of how your practice’s documentation aligns with code selection?
- Do you have multiple providers and want to be sure they meet documentation and coding requirements?
- Do you have a specific service you would like an auditor to provide insight and feedback on?
- Do you have a specific concern and want an audit to provide feedback on this specific concern?
Our RCM auditing team can provide basic and in-depth audits, customized to the needs of your practice.
