—Via AAHomecare WASHINGTON, D.C. (October 25, 2016)—Please join the data-driven campaign to fix Medicare audits—submit your Third Quarter 2016 Medicare audit activity information to AAHomecare's HME Audit Key Survey.

More industry participation is sought to make a stronger case for audit reform. Even if you didn't participate in the earlier data submission rounds, you can still take part in the survey! Find highlights from the Third Quarter 2016 report here.

The HME Audit Key is a free web-based survey the American Association for Homecare developed in response to a lack of data and information provided by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on the impact the audit programs are having on HME Suppliers.

Reminder: Individual Audit Data is not Required—If have not yet delved into the system, please be assured that the Audit Key does not require you to submit data on individual claims, but instead seeks cumulative counts of pre- and post-payment audits and appeal claim outcomes under DME MAC, RAC and SMRC reviews.

How does my company benefit by participating? In addition to providing critical data for the campaign for audit reform, individual suppliers will have access to their own quarterly survey results, and will have access to aggregate survey results and key findings. Suppliers can use this information to see how they compare to others in terms of audit volumes and appeal overturn rates.

Data Security Assured: Your company's individual information will never be shared, but will be included in the aggregate data.

The The HME Audit Key is sponsored by the The American Association for Homecare.
