TPEs and UPICs: The new CMS Audit Strategy
Medicare has implemented the new Targeted Probe and Educate (TPE) audit program as well as the Unified Program Integrity Contractor (UPIC) program in the last year. While the intent of these programs may have been to improve and streamline the audit process, there still remains a number of inconsistencies and concerns that could lead to significant problems for a supplier. This presentation, led by well-known industry expert and former auditor, Wayne van Halem, will provide attendees with an explanation of these new programs and include a discussion of some of the issues that may arise if you are undergoing one of these audits. Furthermore, it will include recommendations on how to react if some of these issues arise.
- Identify key components and procedures in the TPE and UPIC audit process
- Identify some current issues and concerns related to TPE and UPIC audits
- Identify ways in which a supplier can respond to specific actions taken in a TPE and UPIC audit
