Don’t Be An Audit Target in 2018 & Beyond
Pharmacy audits continue to plague pharmacies. With low MAC prices, Direct/Indirect Remuneration (DIR) fees, and contracts that seem to pay less each year, pharmacies cannot afford to lose another dollar to pharmacy audits. This webinar could save you thousands of dollars. Your session will explain the types of pharmacy audits that are occurring and then touch upon prescription requirements and some real-life examples of things that are occurring in the pharmacy audit world, and exactly how to avoid them.
After participating in this webinar, attendees will be able to:
- List three types of audits that are being conducted by third parties;
- Explain the prescription requirements needed to avoid penalties during audits;
- Describe two examples of frequently penalized areas in audits and how to avoid them.
