Product or service: Insurance companies’ rules and regulations are changing constantly. Not keeping up-to-date with all the changes could trigger an audit and ultimately the insurance company may look to recoup payments. Not only can they attempt to recoup payments on audited claims, they may extrapolate those findings and recoup payments on other similar coded claims for a period of 7 years. This has the potential for serious irreparable financial harm to you and your practice. It is important for you to ensure that you are following the LCD’s and documenting properly. Along with the documentation, proper coding of the encounter is important for timely payment of any claims.
