Chiropractic Legal Solutions’ Compliance Audit Program is designed for doctors who have an established chiropractic practice and desire to ensure that you are practicing in compliance with all existing state and federal laws, regulations, agency orders, rules and proper business procedures (such as proper use of CPT coding, documentation, credentialing, etc.), including Medicare’s new requirement that all doctors practicing within the Medicare system have some form of compliance program in place.
The CLS Compliance Audit Program consists of two separate audits of your chiropractic practice:
- a legal audit by our legal staff to ensure compliance with all state and federal laws and regulations governing the practice, as well as ensuring that your marketing programs, contractual agreements and corporate structure are up to par, and
- a coding/billing audit to analyze the practice’s business and operational procedures, including appropriate use of CPT and ICD-9 codes, proper correlation of examination, diagnosis and treatment plans, sufficiency of supporting documentation, billing and re-billing procedures and use of credentialing in your practice.
Following completion of both the legal and business audits, an audit report will be prepared and provided to you with our team’s findings and suggested revisions (if needed) to your business and legal practice protocols. CLS will then provide you with a full clinical Chiropractic Compliance Manual, including proper office procedure forms.
