Know When It’s Time to Extrapolate Overpayments.
Any effective compliance program should be able to identify overpayments it’s received during the course of its regular billing audits. While these overpayments can be anxiety-inducing, the problem doesn’t go away by ignoring it. Especially if your investigation and analysis determines the overpayments have occurred over an extended period of time, and the total value of the refund is significant.
Of course, in the case of a high volume of services, it might not be feasible to audit every single claim. However, that doesn’t excuse you from accurately choosing audit sample sizes and extrapolating reliable results.
