Learning Objective 3

After this presentation, attendees will be able to utilize the tools necessary to perform physician/other provider audits.

We will walk through how each tool is important to a professional fee auditor, how they can be accessed, and how they should be used.  Tips on writing the audit report and giving the results to the physicians/other providers will also be covered.  A handout will also be available for attendees listing the tools and how to access them as a handy reference.

This webinar is not only helpful for full-time auditors, but also coders that work in a physician practice and need to help their physicians and other providers stay compliant.
