Weekly News and Compliance Strategies on CMS/OIG Regulations, Enforcement Actions and Audits

Report on Medicare Compliance is a weekly 8-page newsletter written for busy compliance officers. It provides timely news and valuable strategies to help run a more effective compliance operation, and limit a hospital's exposure to costly compliance risks. Providing practical tools such as checklists, sample forms and decision trees, each issue also is packed with insight from experts to help with these and other serious risk areas:

  • Medical necessity,
  • High-risk DRG coding,
  • RACs, MACs, ZPICs, and MICs,
  • Stark compliance,
  • Physician documentation,
  • And much more

"Report on Medicare Compliance is my one must-read every week, because it gives me both the overview and the analysis I need to deal intelligently with my work. If you have to read one thing to know what’s going on, this is the one!”
– Mark J. Pastin, Ph.D., President, Council of Ethical Organizations, Alexandria, VA

Report on Medicare Compliance is a reliable source for timely guidance on:

  • Implementing effective strategies to use when dealing with Medicare audits and appeals.
  • Complying with the Medicare 60-day overpayment refund rule, which calls on providers to return overpayments 60 days after they’ve been identified ... and gives providers a “clear duty to undertake proactive activities” to determine if there is an overpayment.
  • Dealing with the Justice Department’s new policy of refusing to settle fraud cases unless they receive the names of culpable individuals, who will also be pursued.
  • Coping with the “two-midnight” rule for admissions and improving the related documentation and case management.
  • Employing strategies that will limit potentially enormous Stark risks, which are spiking with greater hospital employment of MDs.
  • Monitoring violations pursued by OIG’s new litigation team in civil money penalty cases.
  • Limiting the chance of false claims when employees, competitors and MDs have knowledge of flaws in your organization.

"Report on Medicare Compliance is loaded with relevant, useful and timely information. I like the sample forms/audit programs, audit ideas and helpful tips. Very useful.”
– April Holmes, CPA, CIA, Director of Corporate Compliance, Corporate Compliance Officer, Southern Illinois Healthcare Carbondale, IL
