CMS podcast addresses high-risk medical necessity vulnerabilities

Recovery Auditor Report, April 7, 2011

CMS’ Medicare Learning Network® has released the first in a series of podcasts designed to teach providers how to avoid common billing errors.

The first podcast, “Recovery Audit Program (RAP) Demonstration High-Risk Medical Necessity Vulnerabilities for Inpatient Hospitals,” is based on the special edition MLN Matters Article SE1027. The eight-minute podcast discusses some of the findings detailed in SE1027 and explains the documentation CMS requires to justify an inpatient admission.

Access the podcast at Select “Provider Compliance” from the list of topics.
