David N. Vozza, a Member of law firm Norris McLaughlin, P.A., presented “Insurance Audits – Recent Trends” at the Ask the Carriers Conference, sponsored by the Onondaga County Medical Society, virtually on June 29.
“Challenging unfavorable audit findings and overpayments can be daunting but are largely preventable. Recognizing and identifying opportunities to stem audits before they occur is essential for any health care practitioner,” said Vozza, who spoke about what to expect in the audit process, preventing audits and overpayments, and real-world case examples.
The all-day event gives physicians and their staff an opportunity to ask questions of local insurance carrier representatives and to learn about new policies or programs. MLMIC Insurance Company presented “Practicing in a Pandemic: Addressing Liability Issues and Maintaining a Safe Environment of Care.” Many local vendors and organizations of interest to physicians and their staff members also attended.
Norris McLaughlin is proud to sponsor the event as General Counsel to the Onondaga County Medical Society, whose members include physicians and medical students in Onondaga County. To learn more about the conference and the Onondaga County Medical Society, visit www.oncms.org.
