 Message: I have been audited by CGS Medicare carrier and in the appeals process the Nurse Reviewer missed "the # of minutes spent with patient" at the bottom of the clinical sheet. And a few other errors.
I know there is at least one other solo Fam Med Doc in Ohio being audited. Are any other solo Docs being audited? Or other private practice Docs being audited?​
If so I am very concerned. If not I wonder if CGS has in their contract that if they can "claw back" any monies they "split the reward" with CMMS?
I and other Docs with AMA assistance "caught" United healthcare employing an audit company who was compensated for down coding Docs back in late 90's . Is this a repeat by another insurer??
Feedback please.
Yes another good reason for DPC style practice.
