Modern Healthcare

Not-for-profit healthcare organizations face greater scrutiny from government audits than their for-profit counterparts, according to a Health Care Compliance Association survey. Not-for-profits reported undergoing an average of six audits compared with four by for-profit healthcare providers in a 12-month period. Larger companies underwent more audits, as 76% of organizations with 5,000 or more employees reported at least one Medicare recovery audit-contractor review versus 30% of organizations with 250 employees or fewer.
