CLIENT ALERT: Responding to CMS and Private Payor Record Requests and Audits

recent report highlighting a $1.9 Billion Recovery by the OIG MFCUs (Medicaid Fraud Control Units) in Fiscal Year 2016 underscores the aggressive nature of government audits. Frier Levitt has experienced a considerable increase in private payor audits against our clients and is monitoring the trend carefully. 

Frier Levitt remains in contact with our professional liability insurance company partners and specialized consultants to ensure that we continue to provide a comprehensive and well-coordinated defense for our clients. If your practice receives a letter from a government or private payor demanding that you send charts and records, please contact Frier Levitt prior to responding.  

Frier Levitt can help you through this process and hopefully prevent a significant recoupment event, which is likely the result the payor is seeking.  Note that there is a strong possibility that all or a portion of our defense will be covered under your professional liability insurance policy. Contact Frier Levitt today to speak to an attorney.

Past results are no guaranty of future success.
