In many ways, a Treatment Audit is a combination of a Medical Peer Review and a Billing/Coding Review. In this, we combine the knowledge and expertise of a medical provider and that of a certified billing and coding specialist. The medical provider of chosen specialty reviews the records in detail and decides, based on the records and his or her expertise, what specific treatment is considered reasonable, necessary and related to the claim in question. After this is completed an MMO certified billing and coding specialist takes these conclusions and conducts an analysis of the medical billings. This results in a recommended reimbursement allowance, expressed in an exact dollar amount by provider.
This service is best utilized in addressing whether treatment rendered and billed was reasonable and necessary, whether the medical records document the need for, and/or the performance of, the treatments billed, and supported by the clinical documentation, and whether billings submitted comply with CPT billing protocols. Fee schedule maximum allowances are identified when applicable.

"I have been working with Medical Management Online for almost 15 years. In that period of time the support service has been superb. They have been very helpful to me if I require additional information and the schedulers completely coordinate with my schedule. The quality of the QA review of the reports has been excellent. I have never had an independent medical evaluation report reflect anything other than the dictation I provided. "
