Physician Coding and Documentation Audits
HMR has audited and trained over 4,000 physicians on documentation standards and coding accuracy. The focus of our documentation and coding audits and follow-up training is twofold — 100% maximum legitimate reimbursement and 100% compliance. HMR uses only deeply experienced certified coders to perform coding and documentation audits and to provide physician and staff training. Our typical client reports a 5% to 7% increase in reimbursement after one year of working with their HMR team. For a more in-depth discussion of our capabilities in this arena please click here.
Self Disclosure/Self Reporting Audits
For over twenty years HMR has been the “go to firm” for clients and their legal counsel when they discover mistakes may have been made and that they likely will have to self report and repay reimbursement. We have assisted in hundreds of self disclosure cases and are well-versed in the OIG/CMS mandated self disclosure protocol. Our reputation is not just that of unerring accuracy in the preparation of self disclosure audits, but also that of a strident advocate for our clients that is capable of strategy development that many times minimizes repayment amounts.
