This presentation will provide an in-depth look at the most common issues seen during compliance audits for professional fee reimbursement and provide helpful tips in identifying those risks and how to avoid them. Documentation issues, templates, cloned notes, modifier usage, physician’s as the coding professional, non-physician practitioner issues (incident to/split shared guidelines), teaching physician guidelines, critical care, and more will be explored.
