During an exclusive RACmonitor webcast, healthcare attorney Knicole Emanuel will explain in simple, easy-to-understand language the peril of the coming overpayment audits and describe your legal defenses.
Get ready. Be prepared. Audits could be coming to your facility. This is crucially important if you had patients who concurrently resided in LTCHs, IRFs, IPFs, or CAH.
In a recent follow-up audit, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG) found $39 million in alleged overpayments were made by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to acute care hospitals. And whenever the OIG audits reveal that CMS was overpaid, you can expect an audit. That means your hospital needs to get ready for these costly audits – now. And you can. Here’s how.
During an exclusive RACmonitor webcast, healthcare attorney Knicole Emanuel will explain in simple, easy-to-understand language the peril of these severe overpayment audits. She will also describe your legal defenses. So, if your acute care hospital has provided medically necessary services to patients residing concurrently in these types of facilities, you deserve payment for the services you provided. And Knicole will show you how to defend yourself legally. Plus, Knicole continues to monitor the OIG for issues the agency is investigating. When she speaks, people listen and take heed.
Whenever OIG finds improper payments, you can be sure that auditors will target the service that has been improperly paid. That means they will be coming after hospitals that treated patients who concurrently resided in LTACHs, IRFs, IPFs, or CAHs – meaning, every acute care hospital. You need to be ready for these audits, and Knicole will explain the defenses that you have.
