Since August 27, when it was first distributed, 54 people have responded to the survey. The majority work in smaller (6-50 person) independent practices. Of those surveyed, 22 or about 41 percent had been audited by a Medicare agency or contractor. Thirteen people had an audit by Medicaid, a private insurer, TriCare or another federal insurer. Three people had multiple audits on the same claim or issue.
The NCMS has shared the survey results with lawmakers at the national level to help them in their efforts to improve the system.
