The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued its Final Rule regarding the reporting and returning of Medicare Part A and B overpayments. The Final Rule implements Section 6402(a) of the Affordable Care Act, which requires a person who has received an overpayment to report and return the overpayment by the later of the date that is 60 days after the date on which an overpayment was identified, or the date any corresponding cost report is due, if applicable. The Final Rule, which became effective March 14, 2016, provides guidance and clarity regarding the 60-day rule requirements. Specifically, the Final Rule addresses when an overpayment is "identified," required look-back period and mechanisms for returning overpayments.
During this webinar, we will:
• Review relevant legal authorities and recent enforcement trends involving reporting and returning of overpayments.
• Discuss key aspects of CMS' 60-day Overpayment Rule for Medicare Parts A and B, such as reasonable diligence, credible evidence, and what it means to "identify" an overpayment.
• Explore practical strategies for monitoring and identifying potential overpayments, as well approaches for complying with refund obligations.
