Speaker: Robert Liles, J.D., M.B.A., M.S.
With the advent of 2021, the number of Medicare, Medicaid and private payor audits has returned to pre-2020 levels. Medicare's Targeted Probe and Educate (TPE) audit program is one of the many initiatives that are currently ongoing. Join us as we discuss how you should respond if your organization is subjected to a TPE audit.  

During this session, we will also discuss the current enforcement/audit landscape and discuss ways that you can reduce your level of risk if your organization is audited.
Webinars are included in select NAMAS memberships plans.
