FixMedicareAudits.org: Industry Headquarters for Audit Reform
OAMES is pleased to annouce that the American Association for Homecare (AAHomecare) has launched FixMedicareAudits.org as the new headquarters for DME audit reform.
FixMedicareAudits.org will act as a one-stop shop for visitors to learn everything they need to know about audit reform and how to support the AIR Act. The AIR Act, H.R. 5083, will make the audit process more efficient, bring back clinical inference, increase transparency, mandate education and outreach, and reward suppliers for low error rates.
"From a strategic standpoint, bringing together all of our resources and initiatives on this issue on a platform like FixMedicareAudits.org will help us educate policymakers, opinion leaders and the industry about the need for significant improvements for the Medicare audit process," said AAHomecare President and CEO Tom Ryan. "The new site will serve as a rallying point for the home medical equipment community to come together in support of the AIR Act, which will apply common-sense fixes to one of the most significant challenges facing our industry today."
The site brings together the multiple components behind AAHomecare’s audit reform strategy including the HME Audit KEY audit data collection system, audit education resources and Share Your Audit Story, a platform to share how audits have hurt patients and providers.
