Leading with Confidence: Be Prepared for Surveys and Audits

Effective documentation and monitoring has never been so critical. Last month, CMS announced that due to the continued delay in awarding new Recovery Auditor contracts, they are initiating contract modifications to the current Recovery Auditor contracts that will allow the Recovery Auditors to restart some reviews. Read more.

Last week’s passage of the IMPACT Act creates additional reasons for hospices to dial up their readiness for audits and reviews. The Act requires that CMS conduct surveys of hospice providers, minimally, every 36 months and also makes a technical correction to the ACA that will allow CMS to move forward with medical review of hospices with a high proportion of long-stay patients.

Ensure your staff understands how to document right the first time, and make sure you have processes in place to prevent problems before they become pervasive.

TCG Has Your Back

Providers facing the increased scrutiny of audits and surveys need an expert in their corner to:

  1. Evaluate their current compliance “fitness” level, including a third-party review of current documentation compliance
  2. Determine the best training schedule to achieve peak performance
  3. Rebound quickly in response to audit or survey findings

TCG audit specialists are available, both on-site and off-site, to help your organization respond to surveys and ADR, RAC, ZPIC and other audit requests. Our experts will also serve as your team to perform routine audits on a recurring quarterly, annual or otherwise needed basis, to give an objective view of your level of compliance.
