  2. Doctor-Specific Medicare Claims Data Could be Released

    For decades, the CMS has kept secret its records on Medicare claims payments to individual physicians. But Justice Department statements in a recent lawsuit and the first-ever releases of other provider charge data this year suggest the federal government’s position on keeping doctor-specific information secret may be changing.

    Proponents of releasing the data say it could help identify patterns of waste and fraud and help patients and insurance companies find doctors who deliver the most efficient and highest quality care.

    But, medical groups have successfully fought to keep the payment information secret, saying it would violate physicians’ privacy rights to disclose their Medicare claims data.

  3. Obama Cracks Down on Docs Abusing Medicare

    Agree with the above – The Obama administration is cracking down on doctors who repeatedly overcharge Medicare patients, and for the first time in more than 30 years the government may disclose how much is paid to individual doctors treating Medicare patients.

  4. CMS Fraud Prevention System Identification of Improper Medicare Payments

    In its second year of operations, CMS’ state-of-the-art Fraud Prevention System, that employs advanced predictive analytics, identified or prevented more than $210 million in improper Medicare fee-for-service payments, double the previous year. It also resulted in CMS taking action against 938 providers and suppliers.

    The Fraud Prevention System is used as part of an agency focus on home health services in South Florida. CMS identified this type of service in South Florida as an area of high risk to our programs. The Fraud Prevention System led to investigations and administrative actions, which ultimately led to the revocation of the billing privileges of home health agencies, with potential savings worth more than $26 million.

  5. Crowd sourcing fraud detection

    Medicare and Medicaid have active fraud detection units that are setting records for recoveries. The HHS effort is not entirely in-house, but also partners with insurance companies and other stakeholders to detect fraud.

    And yet, the programs suffer billions in “improper payments.”
