New changes in Medicare Law often cause physicians to be audited for unintentional upcoming, wrongful use of CPT codes and improper referrals. Many physicians will be audited for lack of specificity in their clinical documentation.
Medicare does not publish its documentation requirements, yet physicians are expected to comply with these unknown set of rules. It would be as if you were driving on the road - without a published speed limit - and got a traffic citation when you were not informed of the proper rules of the road. You shouldn't have to guess at the plain meaning of Medicare Law.
When hit by an audit, you need an experienced attorney who "knows" the system and is informed on real-time changes to Medicare Law.
