Are You Prepared for an EHR Incentive Program Audit?

April 22, 2013


Eligible providers and hospitals attesting in either the Medicare or Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program may be subject to an audit.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and its contractor, Figliozzi and Company, have begun auditing providers who are participating in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program (or those dually eligible for both Incentive Programs).

Post-payment audits have been performed since 2012, while pre-payment audits began in 2013 for those submitting attestations beginning in January 2013.

CMS has developed a supporting documentation for audits fact sheet to help eligible professionals prepare for an audit. This and other resources are available on the CMS website.
