Off-Site Chart Audit
Our off-site chart audit service is carried out by physical therapists with extensive knowledge about payer payment and coverage policy. These services are unique because any aberrant finding is addressed and evaluated from a compliance as well as a risk prospective. Additionally, each audit is performed at the therapist level. Executive Reports provide strengths and weaknesses as well as recommended action plans for high risk and vulnerable areas, if applicable. All audits include valuable resources and references to assist the practitioner to take advantage of opportunities to improve documentation and/or billing. BCMS often provides ‘train the trainer’ consultation to the facilities audited so that they can carry out internal audits. For more information or to receive a quote, email us now.
