Joint Sponsor Statement

This activity is jointly sponsored by Colorado Foundation for Medical Care and MentorHealth.

Our audits are very detailed as we tackle numerous issues not typically addressed. In addition, we teach the 50 percent rule which means that charts should be audited based on the premise that if 50% or more auditors will rule against the doctor, changes should be made. There are many types of audits and auditors: OIG, Medicare, RAC, state board and legal. Each one can have a slightly different focus. It is common to have audits by two auditors or firms that disagree. The goal is to lower the percentage to ten-percent or lower (in other words, 90% of auditors should agree with the findings) Most practice managers and providers are under the impression that all audits and auditors are the same. That is not the case and this Webinar will explain the differences in detail.
