Hospice Audit Series

Audits are a fact of life for hospices—it’s not a matter of “if” a hospice will be audited, but “when.” The alphabet soup of audits has expanded, from UPICs to SMRCs, CPIs, TPEs and more. With the hospice carve-in to Medicare Advantage, MAO audits will join the list. The recent pause in audits as a result of the COVID pandemic hints at increased activity as the pandemic wanes. In this series, Meg Pekarske and Bryan Nowicki of Husch Blackwell’s Hospice Audit team deconstruct the most recent developments in hospice audits, providing insight and guidance on the why, when and how of audits and—most importantly—what hospices can do about it.

Today's Episode | Audit Overlap: Connections and Contradictions Among Audits, Auditors and What to Do About Them

As audit activity escalates, hospices are getting increasingly familiar with the alphabet soup of audits and auditors, including OIG, UPIC, CMS, CPI, SMRC, MAC, TPE and more. Unfortunately, there are times when hospices are dealing with multiple audits at the same time. In this episode, Husch Blackwell’s Meg Pekarske and Bryan Nowicki discuss the increasing prevalence of simultaneous audits, what it might mean and what to do about it.
