IRF Medicare Chart Audits

Prepare your inpatient rehabilitation facility for an external audit by ensuring that your documentation meets IRF regulatory requirements and accurately reports the conditions recorded on the IRF-PAI.

UDSMR’S Education, Training, and Consultation (ETC) department has been performing IRF compliance and coding audits since 2002. This dynamic department includes a cadre of full-time clinical and coding specialists who have an extensive background in both their area of expertise and the IRF PPS. Our knowledgeable and experienced clinical team members understand the IRF PPS rules and regulations that support Medicare’s “reasonable and necessary” criteria and technical requirements, and our expert coders have an in-depth knowledge of IRF PPS coding and the differences between IRF-PAI coding and UB-04 coding.

Decrease your facility’s risk for Medicare denial by partnering with UDSMR’S team of experts. Why wait? Let us help identify current risks and opportunities and provide you with recommendations for improvements.
