Like the insidious omicron variant of the COVID-19 virus, America’s healthcare auditors are, in many cases, auditing claims with complete abandon, forsaking rules created specifically to curb payor abuse. And driven by profit motive, many commercial payors, in fulfilling their corporate mandate to manage risk and save money, find the low-hanging fruit to be ripe for harvesting.

While the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) continues to punish providers for claims submitted with errors of omission, the same disciplinary action is infrequently demonstrated publicly against payors behaving badly. It’s little wonder, in today’s highly regulated healthcare environment, that the audit landscape is fraught with peril for providers. Most notably, Medicare Advantage (MA) plans can tend to skirt the rules and audit records recklessly.
