On Lok PACEpartners Workshops:
CMS PACE Audit – Beyond the Mechanics

Is your organization audit-ready? PACE organizations are audited by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) every year for their first three years, and approximately every three years thereafter.

As the consulting arm of On Lok, the founder of PACE, On Lok PACEpartners has created CMS PACE Audit – Beyond the Mechanics Workshops, a series of two, two-hour online workshops to help prepare your organization for a successful audit by focusing on the areas beyond the regulatory components of the audit such as: understanding how CMS conducts an audit, communication with CMS auditors, guiding your team through the audit, and how to write your responses to a Request for Additional Information (RAI).

Co-developed by an experienced CMS PACE auditor, and a registered nurse with over 35 years of regulatory experience, On Lok PACEpartners CMS PACE Audit – Beyond the Mechanics Workshops provide guidance, training, participant scenarios, and interactive exercises for interdisciplinary, quality, regulatory and compliance teams.

Workshops can be taken as a group or individually.
