On Site Medical Record Review
Preparing multidiscipline documents to submit for a Governmental record review is a daunting task. Many providers approach this task with less intensity than required. This may be due to a lack of experience, limited resources or a combination of the two. Anytime contact is made with a Governmental agency it is of utmost importance to put the best effort forward and impress the reviewers with facts of the case which clearly support the clinical decision making on behalf of the provider when possible.
Facilities have five opportunities or levels of appeal to impress upon the reviewing entity the position of the provider in regards to claims under Governmental scrutiny. Submission of a less than pristine appeal package sets the facility up for repeatedly receiving claim inquiries from the Medicare contractors.
