Welcome to the second installment of our Road Map to HRSA Audit Readiness series!

In this webinar, Heidi and Chelsea will help covered entities walk through the steps of preparing for a HRSA Audit, including a review of new elements included in HRSA’s FY21 data request that entities may not be accustomed to preparing. Participants will review documents to be prepared in response to the data request and once the sample data sets have been received, to facilitate a seamless HRSA audit. There will also be a review of the discussion topics to be prepared for during the HRSA pre-audit call and during the HRSA audit itself, followed by a brief question and answer session.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review requested documents for entity eligibility and Program oversight.
  • Demonstrate compliant documentation of Medicaid billing, provider agreements, and accumulator maintenance.
  • Describe the organization’s 340B compliance processes in preparation for HRSA auditor interview.
