Get eye-opening insights into the unique attributes and challenges of a Medicare Advantage audit, along with valuable guidance to help you ace an MAO audit and protect your payments.
Your organization has just been audited by a Medicare Advantage organization (MAO), and now you’re stuck with a costly claim denial. Will you contest it? Do you even have the right defense in place? Under pressure from CMS, MAOs have become more aggressive in their provider audits, looking for program noncompliance, potentially even fraud and abuse. But the fact is, many audit findings are simply wrong, and recoupments in these instances are not owed by providers. In other words, you must prepare to fight back.
By popular request, we’re bringing you this RACmonitor webcast, presented by Medicare and Medicaid litigation attorney Knicole Emanuel. Learn how Medicare Advantage rules contrast with the rules for traditional Medicare, as well as general legal defenses to deploy when audited. Armed with Knicole’s expert instruction and tips, you’ll be better positioned to ace an MAO audit and hold onto payments that are rightfully yours.
For 2022 CMS has allocated an additional $50 million in its budget for provider audits — which means the odds of being targeted have gone up significantly. But don’t expect an MAO auditor to play by the same rules as a traditional Medicare audit entity. Through this RACmonitor webcast, you’ll become familiar with the unique aspects of a Medicare Advantage audit and learn how to defend yourself accordingly.
