AMAC® is able to provide you with professional resources that will allow comprehensive analysis of your practice, department, clinic or center. Our customized services are negotiated to address your specific needs, which may be short-term or long-term. An explosive growth of new regulations from government agencies and managed competition has evolved as we attempt to address soaring healthcare costs and the uninsured. As a result, many healthcare providers are facing new challenges with a myriad of regulations and paper blizzards. As reimbursements continue to decline and negotiated contracts continue to escalate, the provider must not only be an expert as a clinician, but also must be an expert in the area of practice management.
Most providers prefer to focus on the delivery of good medical care. However, the economic impact of operating decisions can be dramatic in the viability of a department or facility. Therefore, it is increasingly more important for providers to align their businesses with professionals who can offer expertise in the area of practice management and practice guidelines.

The examination of documentation of patient procedures will reveal strengths and weaknesses of any practice. As far as the government and payors are concerned, if it is not documented, it did not happen. Documentation is critical to reimbursement. Appeals do not stand a chance without the appropriate documentation. As our reviewers have a national perspective, we can evaluate your documentation weaknesses and strengths and make recommendations to correct deficiencies.
We also review charge data. This review will help the practice decide if charges are being missed by the physicians or by the billing staff. Most revenues lost by a practice are lost due to inadequate charge capture. It is such a shame to do the work and then not get reimbursed for it just because someone forgot to send out a bill.
In assessing the appropriateness of coding, we review the procedure, all that went into the procedure and then what code was used to represent the procedure. Audits by the OIG are triggered by extremes in coding. Our goal is to educate your physicians and staff on the appropriate code for each procedure and the appropriate level within each code range.
Our reviewers will be able to help you resolve current issues and help you establish measures to prevent future issues.
