Complete Coverage of the Latest Medicare Compliance and Reimbursement News

As you start off yet another challenging year, you need to know how CMS’s new policies and rules for 2018 will affect your practice and your reimbursement. Whether it’s the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule, OIG target areas and monthly work plans, Conversion Factor changes, new Telehealth Code Options, or QPP updates that will affect your bottom line, knowing what the updates are will allow you to budget and plan effectively. 

But CMS isn’t your only worry! Since the first of the year, the OIG has levied substantial prison time, medical license revocation, and punitive fines in several high-profile casesMedically unnecessary treatment, upcoding, and Stark violations were among the reasons behind the stiff penalties. These were some of the fraud and abuse case highlights:

  • Fraud and Upcoding Net MD 13 Years in Prison, Millions in Returns
  • False Claims Suit Renders Massive $16 Million Judgment Against MRI Company
  • Long Prison Sentences Mark Illegal Opioid Distribution and Prescription Cases

 

And, OIG’s 2017 Semiannual Report recorded a plethora of criminal and civil suits, exclusions, and recoveries in the billions. Look at the breakdown for FY 2017, according to the report:

  • Recovered funds: The OIG recouped $4.13 billion in investigative recoveries.
  • Criminal actions: The federal watchdog found 881 individuals or entities guilty of crimes against HHS programs.
  • Civil actions: Civil suits were brought against 826 individuals or entities for fraudulent activities.
  • Exclusions: The OIG also banned 3,244 individuals and entities from participating in federal healthcare programs in the future.

 

This means you need to be careful if you want to avoid billing errors and stay off the OIG hit list. Missing a single update can cost you big money.
