Presented by: Maureen McCarthy, RN, BS, RAC-MT, QCP-MT, DNS-MT, RAC-MTA

SNFs and the healthcare industry have made it through one of the most hectic years in memory. But audits haven’t stopped just because the country has been grappling with a pandemic, and that means facilities’ payments are still at risk. Is your SNF ready for its next audit? Will you know how to respond to the audit’s findings?

This webinar will offer guidance to SNFs on how to avoid payment recoupment, address additional documentation requests (ADR), and appeal negative audit outcomes. You’ll learn from our expert speaker how managed and federal payers approach ADRs, and get an overview of the five levels of appeals and the requirements for each one. You’ll also have an opportunity to ask specific questions during the live Q&A portion of the broadcast.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Identify what an ADR is
  • Identify the top reasons for denials
  • Understand how an ADR is identified
  • Understand the importance of tracking responses to ADRs


  • Learn how to avoid payment recoupment
  • Learn what SNFs need to do for an ADR
  • Learn the differences and similarities in how managed and federal payers approach ADRs
  • Learn the five levels of appeals
  • Q&A
