Stay compliant with Medicare requirements and profit from strategies to conquer escalating reimbursement pressures.

CMS is committed to reducing improper payments. In fact, they’re doing just that. The improper payment rate for fee-for-service (FFS) Medicare dropped from 9.5% in 2017 to 8.1% in 2018. Still, federal agencies find the $31.6 billion cost of 2018 improper payments disturbing.

What does this mean for your practice? Expect heightened scrutiny for top claim errors, such as insufficient documentation, incorrect coding, and failure to establish medical necessity.

To up the ante, policy changes for QPP Year 3 will make earning your MIPS incentive pay challenging — to say nothing of the learning curve these changes impose.

But CMS isn’t your only concern! The OIG has expanded its laundry list with intent to scrub away the prevalence of medically-unnecessary treatment, upcoding, opioid-prescription abuse, and violations under Stark, the AKS, and FCA — with threat of prosecution potentially leading to a debilitating settlement or stiff punitive fines, including medical license revocation and prison time.

Are you aware of Civil Monetary Penalty (CMP) hikes?

  • CMP increases for improperly filed claims (civil): $10,000 to $20,000; $15,000 to $30,000; and $50,000 to $100,000.
  • Maximum penalty increases for providers to reduce or limit services to Medicare beneficiaries: $2,000 to $5,000; and $5000 to $10,000.
  • Criminal penalties for acts involving federal health care programs including but not limited to the Anti-Kickback Statute: $2,000 to $4,000; $10,000 to $20,000; and $25,000 to $100,000.
