Guilty Until Proven Innocent: When Medicare Audits Cause Casualties -revised 6/12

Initial demands from the audit contractor for ,000 in alleged overpayments quickly spiraled into a demand for more than million. After more than two years, 0,000 in expenses, and thousands of hours diverted from direct patient care, this practice proved that it had provided appropriate services to its patients and documented the claims correctly.
