How to avoid being audited?
The short answer is that it is impossible to avoid Medicare audit altogether. Everyone will get audited at some stage in their career.
However, you may significantly reduce the risk of being audited. We will discuss that further in this presentation.
Please, do not take it personally when audited. So far, all Medicare auditors I dealt with were reasonably nice intelligent people. Yes, the audit is about the recovery of money for inappropriately billed items, however, I have not seen any unfairness on part of the Medicare so far.
