Unfortunately, there are several ways that your practice could get into trouble with federal regulations. Incorrect coding and billing are at the top of the list. Your facility’s inadequate billing and coding practices could put you at risk for federal audits, criminal investigations, fines, and other penalties.

While some facilities may think their medical coding and billing procedures comply with all laws and regulations, there is a chance that rules have changed, leaving your facility with non-compliant protocols. Remaining compliant is an ever-evolving process. You must ensure all laws and regulations are followed.

What separates successful healthcare facilities and practices from unsuccessful ones is how they stay organized. Thriving organizations understand that processes and protocols must promote accountability. All staff members play a role in helping your facility remain compliant with billing and coding procedures.

Whether you want to establish a new program or implement a few changes, trust the team at Corporate Investigation Consulting to help with these tasks.

We Can Improve Your Compliance and Boost Revenue

Without a compliant billing and coding program, your facility could face significant problems, such as:

Lack of Organization

With so many rules, regulations, and laws, it is vital to remain organized. Some of the most prosperous practices have streamlined the internal process to ensure all aspects of the facility are organized and compliant. Staying organized can be easier said than done. You need a trusted team to help your facility find the ideal solution to keep it organized.

At Corporate Investigation Consulting, we will help you find the best practices to implement in your facilities. With that, you will not have to worry about opening your facility up to potential liabilities or losing revenue because of inefficient organization.

Additionally, we focus on other aspects of your practice. Our team will enhance the patient experience for everyone. With accurate billings, streamlined medical care, and proper codings, we can help your practice deliver a first-class experience to your patients. If you are ready to find a better way to organize your practice and deliver those exceptional results to clients, contact our Corporate Investigation Consulting team.

Accusations of Fraudulent Claims

Any fraudulent claims will have a negative impact on your practice or facility. When you work with an experienced team to assist with medical billing and coding, you will not have to worry about these fraudulent claims. With our medical coding auditing services, we can detect any fraudulent activities before they can become a problem for you. In most cases, you can resolve the issue before attracting the attention of federal auditors or investigators. Some of the most common fraudulent claims include:

Billing for Non-Covered Services

Not all services are covered by an insurance company. In those instances, the patient may be ineligible for the service. If the facility bills for the treatment, it could be deemed a non-covered service, leading to an accusation of fraudulent billing.

Billing for Unnecessary Services

When team members sign off on the billings, they ensure the services are medically necessary, accurate, and complete. While the requirement will vary depending on the insurer, you must ensure that your billing protocols adhere to ethical billing practices established under state and federal regulations.

Billing for Services Not Provided

While this issue is uncommon, it is the basis for a claim of billing or insurance fraud. Unfortunately, some practices and practitioners could bill for services not provided to the patient. When that happens, it can lead to serious legal liabilities. By establishing a strict and efficient accounting system, you can document which services were provided to the patient to ensure proper billing.


Some providers and facilities may want to bill in a way that allows them to recover more money from an insurance company. Unbundling is one type of practice. With that, the services are billed individually to receive more from the insurance company. When the services are bundled, it will reduce the amount of reimbursement to the provider or facility.


When a facility or provider bills for more services than provided, that is known as upcoding. Once again, these practices can lead to an investigation of insurance fraud. Upcoding can include billing for brand-name medication when a generic was used or rounding up the provider’s time to half-hour increments.

Improperly Trained Staff

Unfortunately, your protocols and practices are only as good as your staff training. You can send them to seminars, classes, and training sessions, but it is all for nothing if they need help understanding how to implement the best billing practices. Today’s regulations and rules are constantly evolving, and your team needs to understand these changes to risk the chances of being non-compliant.

When you work with us, we will help you understand the business aspect of billing and coding. Once you know the importance of these practices, you can efficiently train your staff on these measures. Our skilled medical coding audit team has experience with preventing medical fraud. With our assistance, we will help you find and implement the best practices in your billing and coding department to avoid any legal liabilities.

Lost Opportunities To Increase Revenue

All practices and providers want to boost their revenue. In many cases, the answer is in plain sight. Often, practices may forget to resubmit denied claims, underbill for services and supplies, or miscode claims. All those issues can lead to lost revenue for your practice. With a medical billing audit, our team will help to uncover those discrepancies, which can lead to adding a boost to your bottom line.

Billing Policies Do Not Align With Current Regulations and Laws

Insurance companies and government programs regularly change their regulations and laws. Also, billing codes can face frequent changes. If you want to remain compliant with these regulations, you must have the right billing policies to follow these changes. When you work with us, we will provide you with a professional medical billing audit that can determine where you need to focus your efforts. We understand that full compliance can lead to higher revenue for your facility or practice.

Many practices continue to use outdated protocols and processes that can lead to legal liabilities. You never want to continue with “business as usual” and wait for a federal audit. Taking a proactive approach can pinpoint any weak points in your compliance programs. With that, you will be able to address those issues before they become a problem for your practice. We can conduct an audit at any level, helping you manage your organization’s specific needs.
