OIG Finding of ASC Overpayments Part B

OIG Finding of ASC Overpayments Part B

ASCs did not comply with Medicare consolidated billing requirements in CYs 2006 through 2008 for surgeries performed on patients in Skilled Nursing Facilities. . All 100 services that the Office of the Inspector General reviewed, totaling $102,879, were incorrectly billed to Medicare Part B even though they were included in the SNFs’ Part A payments. As a result, Medicare paid twice for these services, and the OIG is recommending that Medicare pursue repayment totaling nearly $6.5 million.
