Who do you call when payers send a request for payment recoupment? The process to fight a payer audit will be outlined by an attorney and expert coder to discuss all the steps that must be taken to authoritatively appeal the recoupment. What steps the attorney must undertake and what role the coder plays will all be discussed with an actual case study. Mistakes are still being made in billing, coding, and documentation. Do you see your practice making any of these errors? After years and thousands of chart reviews, the top dozen compliance errors (and a few more) will be revealed.
