The Opioid Crisis: The Important Role of CPAs

FVS Consulting Digest recently published an article, “The Opioid Crisis: The Important Role of CPAs,” co-authored by PYA Senior Manager Valerie Rock.  The article outlines the crucial role CPAs play in monitoring and identifying instances of fraud and abuse related to the opioid crisis, and gives examples of how such abuse occurs.

Article Excerpt:

“While CPAs may not have access to extensive prescribing and claims data, they do have access to key financial statements that tell the story of an entity and its processes.  As a CPA, it is important to understand enough about your entity, and how it operates, so you can better identify abnormalities in revenue and/or costs that may be a result of fraud, abuse, or other compliance issues.”
