As optometrists, like other health practitioners registered in Australia, we are subject to auditing by AHPRA, Medicare and private health funds. The audit process is an important way to protect the public and community.
Your selection for audit can be random or as result of a notification or tip-off by a concerned member of the public or colleague.
How will I know if I am being audited?
If you have been chosen for audit, you will generally receive an audit notice by mail. This may be preceded by a phone call from the relevant authority, verifying your professional details.
Help! I’m being audited!
Contact us or speak with one of our national optometry advisors if you need assistance throughout the audit process. Our assistance is complimentary and confidential for members.
