Earn 3 CEUs from Practice Management Institute

Improving audit proficiency reduces practice risk and promotes accurate claim submission. This course will provide guidance on how to perform level-of-service audits. OIG, government-contracted and third-party auditors make practice self-checks more important than ever. You can pay a consultant to do it, wait for an audit letter, or take a proactive stance and implement ongoing self-audit procedures. This class will demonstrate a step-by-step process to implement an internal audit program. Adopting a systematic approach to cross-checking records ensures that you always know where you stand and improves communication with providers and staff.
