AUDITING

"Generally, preventative controls are more efficient and effective than detective controls."

The Federal Government, managed care insurance companies, and contracted agencies are advancing their rights to ensure compliant reimbursement.  Medical records are continually evaluated for errors to ensure the proper adjudication and payment of health claims.  Clear Physician Services provides medical record coding and audits to assist physician offices with Recovery Audit Contractors (RAC) and Comprehensive Error Rate Testing (CERT) audits.

In addition to medical record audits, Clear Physician Services also contracts with organizations to provide coding of medical records as a component of a practice’s billing function.  Credentialed with the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) as a Certified Professional Coder (CPC) and Certified Professional Medical Auditor (CPMA), our staff is certified to provide a level of quality and excellence that is not always an affordable option for a medical provider.

At a minimum, practices should conduct self-audits on a quarterly basis, internal audits on a bi-annual basis, and an external audit on an annual basis.  Clear Physician Services can train your staff to conduct self and internal audits.  We provide external audits for your practice on an annual basis.

  • Determination of a provider's "individual" level of understanding on how to appropriately code and document.
