OCR expected the covered entities to submit the requested papers to the auditors with 10 business days of notification. OCR will then notify selected covered entities between 30 and 90 days prior to the anticipated onsite visit. Onsite visits may take between 3 and 10 business days depending upon the complexity of the organization and the auditor’s need to access materials and staff. After fieldwork is completed, the auditor will provide the covered entity with a draft final report; a covered entity will have 10 business days to review and provide written comments back to the auditor. The auditor will complete a final audit report within 30 business days after the covered entity’s response and submit it to OCR.
