Meaningful Use Audits
Meaningful Use Audit Support
Being Audited for Meaningful Use can be a very stressful experience. Should you receive an audit letter it is good to have experience on your side. The team at TLD Systems has extensive experience in assisting providers in responding to Meaningful Use Audits.
Experience has shown that providers who attempt to answer the audit requests on their own often do not provide the required documentation and are found to have not met Meaningful Use. Should this happen to you, CMS will send you a demand letter to recoup the incentive payment, and you will have 30 days to return the money before CMS starts charging you interest. Failure to return the money can result in the US Treasure sending you letters to recoup the funds. In addition many providers who have failed an audit for one year are immediately audited for additional years. You do not want to find yourself in this position.
