Charge Integrity Services

Periodic and consistent charge description master (CDM) audits can be critical to improving the quality and integrity of your billing functions. Through our Conifer Charge Integrity service, we may review your claims before or after payment depending on your needs. Our process is flexible and can be customized whether your facility has an electronic medical records system, a hybrid record, or a paper record.

Conifer Health’s subject matter experts analyze your CDM and your specific charge capture methodologies through reviews of clinical documentation (such as physician orders) and billed charges, as well as interviews with department staff. We integrate our onsite reviews with our data analysis. Our comprehensive reports and recommendations can help you identify opportunities to improve the accuracy of your charges and educate your staff.
