Although exact rights of the covered entities is not stated clearly, from the pilot audit conducted in 2012, we can conclude that no third party audit service providers are allowed to assist during the process. If such service providers are part of your regular operations, then they can assist the auditors. If covered entity would prefer to have their attorney during the process, they can use their service as well.
What rights do you have during an OCR/HHS audit?
