Data wanted: Audit Key accepting new submissions
WASHINGTON – AAHomecare encourages providers to submit data for the first quarter of 2016 to the HME Audit Key. The HME Audit Key collects summary data on audits and appeals. AAHomecare then uses the data to engage policymakers and government regulators on audit-related issues. The first round of data collection, which ended in February, found that 12% of HME claims for new Medicare patients were denied. Participation is free. Go to hmeauditkey.com.
