How to navigate audits by Medicare and Medicaid
A newly archived AMA webinar explains what every physician needs to know about the growing number of physician audits conducted under the Medicare and Medicaid programs.
Hosted by a physician advocate and legislative attorney, this hourlong webinar covers the different types of auditors employed by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and describes best practices for physicians who have received a request from one of them. The webinar also includes a forecast of emerging physician audit issues.
