Medical auditing is a critical element to ensure physicians’ practices are not only in compliance with applicable regulatory standards, but also ensures these practices are profitable in the short and long term. Federal Medicare and Medicaid regulations will begin to tighten after the passage and implementation of provisions from the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. To ensure compliance with these new regulations and also maintain revenue levels and overall profitability, many healthcare practices will require Certified Professional Medical Auditors to apply their skills in coding, documentation and compliance in providing audit services. This certification from the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) ensures participants can provide various services from recovery audits to private payer denials – all services that help ensure accurate reporting and accounting for medical practices across the country. This course is designed to prepare an individual to become an AAPC Certified Professional Medical Auditor (CPMA).
