Just as certain as the sun rises in the morning, new audits are on the horizon that will surely rattle your facility and disrupt your operations. As soon as the public health emergency (PHE) is lifted, as a result of COVID-19, auditors will come down hard on skilled nursing facility (SNF) admissions which, during the pandemic created hundreds of regulatory exceptions to those rules. In the post pandemic environment there will be no exceptions to the rules, and auditors will be lurking to pounce on this new audit target. That's why you need to be prepared for post-PHE audits. You need to know the COVID-19 exceptions applicable to SNFs and the documentation required. You also need to be conversant with the COVID-19 exceptions that auditors will target post-PHE and how to pass the audits. The bottom line: many SNFs and will be victims of post-PHE audits and owe money.
You can prepare your team for the expected onslaught of these audits by registering to gain access to an exclusive RACmonitor webcast led by healthcare attorney Knicole Emanuel. During this special 60-minute webcast, Ms. Emanuel will walk you through the most onerous COVID-19 exceptions and describe the documentation required for each exception. In so doing, you will be able to check whether your electronic medical record (EMR) is adequately documenting these exceptions. And that's how you'll be prepared for future audits.
