The auditing never stops, and the pace is quickening. New issues, new audits.
But what are the costs for hospitals seeking to avoid audits? In one of the most comprehensive reports of its kind ever offered, RACmonitor and Monitor Mondays will bring on board prescient thought leaders to define the contours of this deepening healthcare regulatory crisis. During the next edition of Monitor Mondays, our very own physician-attorney John Hall will report on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) vaccine mandate that almost happened, along withwhat this means, what you need to do, and, of course, how it might be audited.
The latest Comprehensive Error Rate Testing (CERT) report revealed more than $25 billion in improper payments. And that means that providers and suppliers will have their processes and documentation audited further. Former Recovery Audit Contractor (RAC) Medical Director Robert Glenn, MD will report on how RACs utilize similar techniques to identify audit targets.
What are the costs for hospitals trying to protect themselves from these audits? Maggie Shi, a PhD candidate at Columbia University, will share her doctorial thesis using mathematical modeling that may be beyond the comprehension of some.
