Random Medicare audit via correspondence or a visit.

Random Medicare audit may be conducted via correspondence or a visit by Medicare officer.

The rules are the same – prepare and give the answers strictly according to the item descriptor. 

Do not argue for the Medicare officer. Ask for help and guidance. 

If asked to produce any records to be sent to Medicare, do not rush to do so. There, usually, plenty of time to do so. We will discuss written response to the Medicare audit further in this presentation.

Practice point: Stop, think, discuss with others first.
