See below for the full webinar description and objectives.

The playback link can be viewed on your computer as many times as you would like and audio comes through your computer speakers.
Are you familiar with these entities: OIG, GAO, CERT, RAC, ZPIC, MAC, and MEDPAC? Do you know what your utilization statistics are for Medicare patients compared to other practices in your region and state? Have you read any of the recent OIG cases against outpatient therapy? Think they don’t apply to you? Medicare audits are on the rise, and outpatient physical therapy has been on the OIG worklist for several years. Attend this webinar to learn about your Medicare data footprint and how Medicare can use that data. Learn about the multiple audit entities and how to respond to a record request. Learn about the items cited in the most recent OIG cases. Determine the key items that might put your practice at the most at risk and leave with tools to evaluate and impact your data footprint.
At the conclusion of this webinar presentation, participants will:
1. Understand the data footprint of your clinic and how it compares to other clinics in your region.
2. Identify key compliance elements cited in recent OIG cases that might also impact your practice.
3. Identify the different entities that conduct audits and their primary purpose.
4. Develop a plan to respond to any audit request completely and effectively.
5. Understand clinic behaviors that might negatively impact your data footprint.
