A Baseline Coding and Compliance Audit

Our team performs a retrospective audit to review of your current coding, billing and documentation procedures. This audit is conducted in a way that closely simulates an actual carrier audit. We compare your existing practices to CMS and National Guidelines as well as the medical necessity of the encounters. A distinct advantage that our team has over other firms is access to our proprietary risk assessment tool, Compliance Risk Analyzer (CRA), which identifies encounters that demonstrate high and moderate risk, allowing and helps identify outliers and aberrant coding patterns that typically trigger an audit.

We report on your evaluation and Management (E/M) coding accuracy, documentation, accuracy of procedural coding, accuracy of modifier assignment, bundling as well as potential issues with your Electronic Medical Records (EHR) such as faulty templates. Our report includes recommendations to correct the issues as well as recommendations for training to help mitigate future risk.
