Question number 1:

QUESTION: What is one of the top defenses against risk, exposure and low reimbursements a health care organization can put into action?

ANSWER: A strong coding quality audit program. Find out how to achieve coding audit success at our next webinar, “The Value of a Complete Coding Quality Audit Program” – worth one CEU.

Question number 2:

TRUE OR FALSE: One coding audit annually, based on a random sample of 30 charts per coder, ensures accurate documentation and coding practices in a health organization.

FALSE. In 2018, increasing scrutiny on accurate reporting and reimbursement means greater exposure and possible consequences. Complex government legislation and regulations could inhibit complete, accurate documentation and coding outcomes. Annual coding audits are not enough to safeguard your organization from risk of noncompliance.

A coding quality audit plan that includes frequent audits, using different chart selection methodologies, results in the most complete, well-rounded compliance program with little to no risk, and yields additional benefits including accurate reimbursements.
