Get a Grip on New Guidelines and Regulatory Changes.
As we all know, auditing is one of the seven requirements of an “effective” compliance program, according to the notorious OIG. Hospitals and facilities are encouraged to conduct regular audits to ensure that medical necessity for admission and treatment is documented and that bills submitted for Medicare services are correct. And there’s plenty of other reasons to audit.
But when it comes down to the nitty-gritty of the audits themselves, there’s a lot of guideline changes, regulatory changes, and audit plan revisions for 2019 to keep on your radar. Like the ICD-10-PCS coding guidelines, and the 2-Midnight rule regulatory changes, to name just a few.
