CMS Issues Guidance on EHR Meaningful Use Audits
Post-payment audits of organizations that received meaningful use incentive payments began in 2012 and pre-payment audits have been added this year. Details of the audits programs are available via an Audit Overview Fact Sheet.
To be ready for an audit if selected, providers now have access to a CMS Supporting Documentation for Audits Fact Sheet to walk them through what types of information are requested and how to comply. Also available are sample audit request letters for eligible professionals and hospitals.
