With his personal experience and wealth of knowledge, Dr. Schmidt is a highly sought after expert that you want – and need – on your side.

Expert Witness During An Audit Or Investigation
Insurance companies have Special Investigation Units / Divisions, called SIU or SID units, which audit and investigate health care providers for alleged fraud and abuse. These investigations can lead to demands from the insurance for repayment of money already paid to a provider. Dr. Schmidt has worked on many cases defensing providers of physical medicine services. His knowledge and experience often help to undercut the position of the insurance companies that has helped many providers avoid paying any money back to insurance companies.
Dr. Schmidt is available for a one day onsite office consultation to evaluate the services that are rendered and billed in your office; review patient files for accurate coding and documentation; interview staff and help implement a compliance program in your office.
Using technology such as GoToMeeting, FaceTime and Skype, Dr. Schmidt can also do a videoconference office consultation with you and your staff. This is an efficient way to have Dr. Schmidt “see” your office without actually being on the premises. Patient files can be reviewed online. This service typically takes 4 to 6 hours of consulting.
Hourly Phone/Video Consultation
Consult with Dr. Schmidt over the phone or on a virtual videoconference to discuss your statistics and business practices for an hour or more. This is an excellent starting point for anyone that wants to get a better idea of where they stand regarding issues relating to coding, documentation and compliance. This is a “must” for all doctors who want to know.
