As many of you know, CMS has resumed surveys along with Targeted Probe and Educate Program integrity recovery audits. Several agencies have requested to have some survey webinars to help with preparation for surveys when they eventually are selected.

This session will cover the foundational items of a survey, helping you understand the different type of survey outcomes.
