Would your documentation pass a Medicare audit? Does your documentation support the services you are billing to Medicare? With increasing regulatory requirements and scrutiny of documentation to ensure services billed to Medicare are reasonably and medically necessary and meet the statutory requirements it is imperative that providers understand the requirements and the documentation required to support Medicare coverage.

Come hear firsthand from your Medicare Administrative Contractor Provider Outreach and Education Consultant about how to strategize to survive a medical review audit. Corrinne Ball has fifteen years of experience with Medicare documentation, and she will be providing firsthand knowledge about the Targeted Probe and Educate process, responding to a hospice ADR, and documentation requirements. During this session we will examine the targeted probe and educate (TPE) process, data that drives medical review audits and top medical review denials. This session is designed to give providers the tools, and information to design and implement a strategy to be successful during a medical review audit.
