I am the (part-time) Lab Director for a physician's office that conducts urine drug screens as part of their pain management practice. The POL was informed that they have an upcoming Medicare audit and it was suggested by a consultant that " visit notes setting forth the medical necessity of the screening, the requisition order, the lab results (which hopefully show the instrument assisted component)..." be made available. Are there any lab-specific preparations that I should consider in preparation for the audit of the practice?
