    Medical Review Preparedness & Response

    Efforts to reduce Medicare fraud and abuse have escalated, including expanded auditing of medical records and billing trends by governmental agencies and contractors. The administrative and financial implications of these intensive audits are significant.

    Proactive works directly with Providers or through legal counsel using a 3-prong approach to reduce risk and increase favorable audit outcomes.

    3 PRONG APPROACH TO REDUCING DENIALS

    1. Risk Assessment – Review of clinical & billing systems focusing on OIG work plan target areas
    2. Training, Auditing & Monitoring – In depth staff training with follow-up monitoring and outcomes of measurement
    3. ADR & Appeals Management- Solutions for improved claims review results

     

    Proactive client claims undergoing Medicare review are more than twice as likely to yield favorable results as non-Proactive clients.
