Audits and CPC liability


Sioux City Iowa
Best answers
The clinic that I work for is undergoing an audit. They use a 3rd party EHR and billing service that submits the claims to insurance companies, apparently it is in their contract to send claims out after 7 days after appointment regardless if documentation as completed or not. I know as a CPC, that isn't the correct way to accurately code and submit to insurance. This process had been going on long before I began my employment with them. I have tried to educate the provider and the office manager several times regarding compliance and documentation issues being told that the documentation would get done eventually. What is my liability as a CPC in this mess? Any suggestions and information would be greatly appreciated.
