Post-participation questionnaire – Medicare Billing Assurance Toolkit

Page last updated: 28 January 2016

Introduction

Encourage health professionals in your practice to complete the following questionnaire after undertaking a Medicare billing assurance review. Over time, you can gather information on how perceptions and attitudes have developed in your practice to help you identity trends about Medicare billing assurance that you can focus on.

While there are no right or wrong answers, you need to be comfortable with your practice's risk levels as indicated by the responses to each question. When used with the Pre-participation questionnaire, you can see whether there's been a difference in your practice's risk profile as a result of doing a Medicare billing assurance review and adopting one or more strategies to address the identified risks to correct Medicare billing.

Please circle the number that best matches your answer.
