With Medicare audits looming and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG) Work Plan items now relating to telehealth services performed during the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE), it is time to make certain that your organization is accurately reporting services and claims within the requirements of the 1135 waivers relevant to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act of 2020.
Remember, too, that in the world of healthcare auditing, it’s not “if” you get audited, but “when.”
Because of the immediacy of these Medicare telehealth audits, we asked nationally recognized professional auditor, coder, author, and consultant Terry Fletcher to share with you the top 10 regulatory rules for Medicare telehealth.
