Please remember to take a few minutes to submit your 3rd Quarter 2016 Medicare audit activity information to AAHomecare’s HME Audit Key Survey.
More industry participation is sought to make a stronger case for audit reform. Even if you didn’t participate in the earlier data submission rounds, you can still take part in the survey!
The HME Audit Key is a free web-based survey the American Association for Homecare developed in response to a lack of data and information provided by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on the impact the audit programs are having on HME Suppliers.
Visit www.hmeauditkey.org to contribute your data to the HME Audit Key survey!
Reminder: Individual Audit Data is NOT Required
For those of you who have not yet delved into the system, please be assured that the Audit Key does not require you to submit data on individual claims, but instead seeks cumulative counts of pre- and post-payment audits and appeal claim outcomes under DME MAC, RAC and SMRC reviews.
You can see presentations on preparing and entering your data here.
Data Security Assured: Your company’s individual information will never be shared, but will be included in the aggregate data. See additional details on how your data is protected in the Audit Key.
Your data WILL make a difference! The HME industry needs reliable and representative data to better demonstrate the burdensome nature of audits. We must build our capabilities to accurately detail how the industry is being impacted in order to finally secure much-needed reform to the audit process.
The HME Audit Key is sponsored by the American Association for Homecare.
