The folks at e-medtools who create MedicalTemplates, MedSpel and the E and M Audit Tool have created a Trailblazer Medicare Audit Tool. This tool is useful to health care providers in Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and District of Columbia.
Like all their templates, the Trailblazer Medicare Audit Tool is created using a fillable PDF format so that the form can be completed online or printed and completed by hand.
Reimbursement for health care services is complex and confusing. Taking the time to learn and incorporate appropriate medical documentation into every patient encounter note benefits everyone, but is even more critical these days given the severe economic pressures and increased scrutiny by insurance companies.
These Medicare audit tools make great tools for learning the complexities of medical documentation necessary to justify billing levels. When it comes to documentation, if it isn't documented it didn't happen according to medical insurance companies (and lawyers, of course).
