The most important thing about Medicaid audits is avoiding a referral to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. When you or your practice is subject to a Medicaid audit, caution is in order. Whether the audit is a routine administrative inquiry, based on a patient complaint, or part of an ongoing fraud investigation is often not obvious at the beginning. At the same time, there are no second chances when it comes to appropriately responding to Medicaid audits. Mistakes are hard to cure and any provider is well-advised to obtain professional advice right away instead of handling this government audit himself or herself.
