How can SAS help?
Decades of Hospital and Healthcare Recovery Audit Experience
Our management and team of healthcare audit professionals have an extensive background in performing recovery audits for hospital and healthcare systems. This extensive experience includes:
Comprehensive Recovery Audit Solutions
Many firms limit their reviews to typical Accounts Payable Recovery areas such as Duplicate Payments, Statement and Overpayment Audits. Our process is different. We extend our audits well beyond the typical Accounts Payable Recovery Audit engagement. In addition to a Duplicate Payment Audit and a Vendor Statement Audit, we dig much deeper and find the majority of our recoveries in areas not typically reviewed by the other firms.
Typical recovery audit categories include:
- Most favored pricing (GPO vs. local supplier agreements)
- Reconciliation of unrealized allowances and rebates
- Review consigned inventory pricing
- Unit price comparison of returns to original purchase
- Review inappropriate handling charges
- Freight & Delivery overcharges
- Product returns
- Formulary Rebates
- Pricing (UOM, Generic, OTC)
- Duplicate payments
- Dosing/Package Size
- Performance Guarantees
Value Added Reporting
At the conclusion of your Healthcare Recovery Audit, SAS will present a comprehensive Engagement Management Report which will provide your company with a detailed overview of your recovery audit engagement results complete with areas reviewed, root cause analysis and process improvement recommendations. Details of our reporting are outlined on the Internal Control Enhancement page.
