Program Materials

This CLE webinar will provide guidance to counsel for healthcare providers, suppliers, drug plan sponsors and Medicaid managed care organizations (MCOs) on the new CMS proposed rules on reporting and returning Medicare overpayments.

Description

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently published its proposed rule implementing the 60-day Medicare overpayment reporting requirement under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

CMS addresses the timing of identifying an overpayment, reconciliation, sets up a process of reporting and refunding the overpayment, and increases the lookback period. Under the proposed rule, failure to meet the requirements to report and return overpayments can result in liability under the False Claims Act.

Counsel to healthcare providers and suppliers must understand the new requirements, advise on implementing policies and procedures for reporting and refunding identified overpayments, and implement audit approaches.

Listen as our authoritative panel of health law practitioners reviews the overpayment obligations under ACA, examines CMS’ proposed rule—including its impact on Medicaid—and offers practical steps for providers and suppliers to take in response to the proposed rule.
