With the amount and scope of payer audits increasing, providers are turning to internal audits to identify and correct any documentation and coding issues. A regular program of internal auditing is the best way to prepare for an external audit. Surgical chart auditing is a skill that requires practice to perform correctly. In addition to assuring the proper coding was assigned, other legal aspects found in a surgical record must also be considered, such as informed consent requirements and documentation requirements for surgical encounters. Learn how to completely and accurately review and validate surgical services from a compliance perspective.
Please Note: Workshops include interactive, hands-on exercises. Please bring your core coding books (CPT®, ICD-9-CM, HCPCS Level II).
