Universe Scrubber

Audit Universes Built on Order, Not Chaos


Audit universes—comprised of elemental business areas compiled and maintained for the audit planning process—are important for accurate monitoring, analysis and oversight of health-plan compliance programs. In fact, they have become a fundamental component of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

However, the effort required to generate an accurate and compliant CMS universe is so high that many health plans do not routinely utilize them as an ongoing compliance tool.

Common audit universe issues include:

  • Assigned data in the wrong fields
  • Missing or inappropriate data
  • Repeated errors, despite CMS findings
  • File naming-convention errors
  • Incorrect template

Most of these are errors due to negligence or ignorance, and can result in higher costs, lower star ratings and wasted time.

Why face the risk of enforcement action? Clean CMS-compliant universes can be created accurately in under 2 minutes!

Proactive compliance establishes order. Reactive compliance ends in chaos.
