Everyday at OMCA, our highly trained RNs audit our clients’ medical billings. One of our most successful programs is an “Onsite Hospital Audit” performed by an RN with extensive surgical/hospital based experience. They roll up their sleeves and delve into the nitty gritty field work of auditing the original medical record.
Our clients want to pay what is owed, but do not want to pay for excessive, inappropriate, unrelated, and undocumented procedures.
Call us. We can do better.
