“We have been slammed with Medicare Advantage DRG audits,” wrote Sandra from Indiana during last week’s Monitor Mondays broadcast. We asked RACmonitor national correspondent J. Paul Spencer with DoctorsManagement to investigate this issue for the next edition of the weekly Internet radio broadcast. Will there be more of these audits? Do these represent low-hanging fruit for auditors? Stay tuned.

The broadcast rundown also will include: 

  • Monday Rounds: Ronald Hirsch, MD, vice president of R1 Physician Advisory Services, will file another report on the controversial total knee replacement (TKR) issues that continues to confound physicians and patients.

  • Hot Topics: Monitor Mondays senior correspondent Nancy Beckley, president and CEO for Nancy Beckley and Associates, will have all the latest hot topics and the Monitor Mondays Listener Survey.
