PRLog - March 20, 2014 - ASHEVILLE, N.C. -- Jim Tate, the leading expert on CMS EHR Incentive Audits & Appeals, announced today additional support for hospitals involved in the CMS EHR Incentive Programs. According to Tate over 4000 hospitals have already received the EHR incentive funds totaling over $14 billion dollars and a minimum of 5% will be audited according to CMS. An audit failure puts a hospital at risk to have 100% of received incentives recouped.
Meaningful Use Mock Audit Program
“Our team has been very successful at leading hospitals through both meaningful use (MU) incentives audits and appeals”, says Tate. “With our new service we are responding to the requests of hospitals who have been asking us for some time to offer bring our expertise to mock audits.”
Hospitals across the country have been turning to the team behind www.MeaningfulUseAudits.com (http://www.meaningfuluseaudits.com/)
“…a demand letter from CMS was received by our hospital requesting recoupment of $1,014,765...It was at that time we engaged the services of Mr. Tate…on 1/24/2013 we were notified that the adverse audit decision was being overturned…I would recommend the services of Mr. Tate.” - CEO of Medical Center
“ Our first reaction was panic...I immediately contacted Jim Tate...Jim’s knowledge and comprehensive study on the requirements set forth by CMS were instrumental in helping us achieve a favorable outcome in the audit...I highly recommend Jim Tate and his services.” - CEO of Critical Access Hospital
