We currently serve as outside counsel for one of the largest national hospice providers, handling audit response issues and appealing unfavorable audit results. Recent work includes the appeal of 12 ZPIC audits involving extrapolated overpayment demands totaling over $16 million. To date, we have been successful in overturning extrapolation in 7 of the audits at the first level of appeal and have reduced the error rate in all 12 audits, resulting in the overturning of over $9 million in overpayment demands.
