It’s time to have a PEP talk on today’s show!
A PEP (Physician Education Program) makes sure your physicians are meeting basic standards for Risk Adjustment Data Validation (RADV) process for Medicare.
RADV is the process of verifying that chronic diagnosis codes submitted for payment by the Medicare Advantage organizations are supported by medical record documentation for the patient.
Physicians may receive an audit of these records at any time.
With MIPS and MACRA (and the reporting which goes along with them) there is no time like the present to have a PEP talk with the physicians. Terry shares her expertise on these conversations, that you should be having NOW.
Today’s show will be your daily motivation to help build confidence as you prepare to speak to your physicians and clinicians about this important subject.
