Through periodic clinical documentation review and coding audits, Corridor can help you implement proactive strategies to avoid the scrutiny of government contractors like RACs, ZPICs, MACs and MICs.
RAC, ZPIC and ADR Audits
RACs, MACs, ZPICs and MICs are all poised to review potential payment errors for CMS. Medicare intermediaries are authorized to initiate pre-payment review, which can interrupt cash flow and create a significant financial burden. RACs can look back over a three-year period and recoup overpayments. ZPICs are looking for fraud. While look-back periods and objectives of these government contractors may differ, the five step Medicare appeals process is uniform for all Medicare contractors. This appeal process is time consuming with tightly defined timelines. Corridor can support your organization through the audit and appeals process to ensure timely, effective response at each level of appeal and help implement strategies to avoid future scrutiny. Our experts have helped hundreds of agencies safeguard their finances through improved documentation and pre and post payment reviews that identify areas of potential vulnerability.
