Preamble: Many of the issues I bring to you are very small, yet each issue is just that, an issue. If you take care of the small issues, then you will be able to build and more importantly, focus on the bigger issues...a larger practice and more family time.

“Compliance Review”

I just hung up with a new doctor who started our program 1 month ago and quit after 2 weeks. I did a compliance review with him as he is still using travel cards and cryptic evaluation notes. When I explained to him that 100% of every Medicare patient is being audited for 2013 and beyond and the other carriers will follow suit in some fashion, he needs to be complaint.

I went on to say that I could care less if he doesn’t get 1 additional new case. He must be complaint. He stated that he quit because he was overwhelmed with the work required to get to a barely acceptable level of documentation and was asking me to give him some advice on a case with a current lawyer. I shifted the conversation back to his compliance issue and said the following: 

“Too bad. I don’t care if you are overwhelmed, upset, unhappy, scared or any other emotion. I only want to know that you are calling me get help becoming complaint, not help to get you out of the carrier’s retrospective audits where they want $100,000’s from you or more and you live with defense lawyers around the clock. 

Are you complaint? Have I reviewed your documentation? It is free with membership and you MUST take advantage of it.
