Staying a Step Ahead:
CMS Audit Universe Testing and Analytics Service

CMS Audit Universes are a challenge. The last thing you want to do is to be testing your data when you get a CMS audit notice or when you receive notice to provide universes for the annual Industry Wide Timeliness Monitoring program. Not only will you not know what that data will actually show CMS, but you also may risk an Invalid Data Submission (IDS).

ACG resolves the CMS Audit Universe challenge.  ACG clients find Universe Testing, Timeliness and Analytics allow them to not only test, but unpack information that provides business owners and compliance teams invaluable information on performance.  Email ACG now for a universe testing proposal
