Auditing Tools, Tips and Resources to Assess and Improve Your Billing and Coding Processes


The Affordable Care Act mandated compliance programs for Medicare and Medicaid providers in 2010 but did not set a deadline. It requires the HHS to promulgate core elements and set an effective date for compliance programs through rulemaking. Though, compliance programs are not yet mandatory but they soon may become so. Is your anesthesia practice prepared?

Your anesthesia practice must ensure it is following the appropriate billing and coding guidelines. Understanding how to conduct an internal audit will help your anesthesia group understand and manage the risk before these compliance plans become mandatory.

Join us for this session with expert speaker Kelly Dennis to get auditing tools, tips and resources to help your practice create robust and compliant internal auditing processes.
