Staying profitable in the wake of Medicare reimbursement cuts is an ongoing struggle.

During Fiscal Year (FY) 2017, OIG’s report reveals recoveries of more than $4.13 billion in health care fraud judgments and settlements. The report also mentions exclusions of 3,244 individuals and entities from participation in Federal health care programs; which means you need to be extra careful to avoid billing errors and stay out of OIG hit list.

Missing a single update can cost you; whether it’s a fee schedule change, a new form, proposed rule or an added documentation requirement.
