RAC Audit Defense
Before you simply capitulate and pay them, it would be prudent to confirm their findings. Writing a small check to The Coding Network might eliminate or reduce a large check to these “bounty hunters.” Their auditors may not be intimately familiar with your specialty, and their commission-only structure certainly gives them an incentive to assert that you’ve made coding errors or that your records don’t support your claims. There may be some gray areas in your charts that they interpret against you. We can audit the same encounters or operations they examined, and our findings may give you the ammunition you need to mount a credible defense.
