CMS Program Audit Preparation –
Ready or Not!
By Shelley Segal, CEO
2023 CMS Program Audits Are Here!
Sponsors (Medicare Advantage and Part D Organizations) are encouraged to perform mock CMS Program Audits, especially generating universes. Mock CMS Program Audits will help you prepare for an actual CMS Program Audit, and may improve your operations by identifying areas that are problematic or that may have negative member impact. Audits are not just about compliance. Correct Identification of member grievances and inquiries are crucial; when were the latest grievance samples audited? What were the results? When did the member receive a written response? Who was informed of the audit results?
