Guide to General Practitioners. This post is not legal advice but rather a recollection of Medicare audits encountered by the author – Paul Soloviev, in his 20 years consulting career in General Practice.
For many years I have been next to doctors who were subject to the audit. I helped in drafting letters, discussing strategies, preparing the materials. I have been present with them during hearings at Professional Services Review and AHPRA. I have witnessed what profound psychological impact the audit had on most of the doctors.
Objectives of this post are: to help GPs minimise the audit risk, prepare for the audit, and improve chances for the desirable outcome.
