AWV AuditFebruary 21, 2019admin Thank you for your interest in the AWV Audit. This process will only take a few minutes, but will help you to better understand whether your practice is in general compliance with CMS guidelines for administering the Annual Wellness Visits. Please note: This audit is not intended to represent an actual finding of compliance, but rather is a general guideline to help you better understand areas where your practice may be missing key areas of the new AWV guidelines for proper billing. A "passing" grade on this audit should not be considered a guarantee of CMS eligibility, but it should give you more confidence that you are, at the very least, proceeding in the proper direction for making sure you are providing most of the major requirements of the AWV. If the audit identifies areas of weakness, you should contact us for a free consultation on how you can improve your AWV system and process.
