This documentary released by the NC Medical Society and the Physicians Advocacy Institute (PAI), details the two-year ordeal of a rural North Carolina medical practice that underwent a Medicare audit. Initial demands from the audit contractor for $40,000 in alleged overpayments quickly spiraled into a demand for more than $1 million. After more than two years, $300,000 in expenses, and thousands of hours diverted from direct patient care, this practice proved that it had provided appropriate services to its patients and documented the claims correctly.
