Join us for the final half of our two-part series on Medicare audits and appeals on December 20, 2017. Last month, we discussed how Medicare contractors conduct auditing and select providers for audit.
This month, we’ll explore the appeals process providers use once they have been auditing and an overpayment has been determined. The Medicare appeals process is complex and multi-layered with varying timeframes and requirements for each level of appeal. We’ll also look at some common appeal strategies you can use to give your claims the best chance of ultimately being paid.
