In order to give HME providers the best opportunity to participate in our major data collection initiatives, AAHomecare is extending the deadlines for our Industry Cost Survey and for the 2Q 2016 data submission round for the HME Audit Key to Friday, August 12.
Your participation in these programs will improve their overall quality and impact, ultimately helping us advocate for better reimbursement policies, rolling back competitive bidding-driven pricing cuts, and much needed reform on Medicare audits.
Please be assured that your company's individual data in both of these surveys will remain confidential and will only be included in the total aggregate data.

HME Audit Key – 2nd Quarter 2016 Data Submission Round
The HME Audit Key survey is open to all providers- regardless of the number of audits you are receiving. Previous participation is not required, and new data submissions are always welcome.
Please note that survey 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. Register, find more information/support, and enter your data at HMEAuditKey.org.
