The June 7 deadline is quickly approaching. Has your organization already submitted its required Medicaid Self Audit?

If your plan is not fully underway, now is the time to contact Anderson & Lohr. We can help you complete and submit the required audit by the June 7 deadline.

What does Medicaid require? All Medicaid providers in Alaska must conduct a self-audit once every two years, prepare a report and submit a Provider Self-Audit Attestation1 In addition, they must repay any overpayments identified. The audit report for the 2017 and 2018 years is due to the State of Alaska no later than June 7, 2020.

Does my facility/practice need to complete a self audit? Medicaid providers in Alaska are required to take these steps:

  • If your annual Medicaid reimbursement exceeded more than $30,000, a self audit must be completed and a report submitted to the Alaska Department of Health & Social Services.
  • If your annual reimbursement was less than $30,000 but more than $10,000, you must complete a self audit. Altough submission is not required, the report must be available for review upon request.
  • If the annual reimbursement was less than $10,000, only a completed attestation form is required.

The reimbursement level is based on the amount listed on the provider’s IRS Form 1099.
