CMS just issued the final requirements for the incredibly stringent 60-day overpayment rule, which means harsh penalties for not finding and returning overpayments. You will have 60 days from the time you know OR should have known you received an overpayment to return the money. If you don’t, you’ll face False Claims Act and civil monetary penalty liability totaling thousands of dollars for each claim and exclusion from Medicare – even if the overpayment was unintentional.
You have less than 30 days to prepare – the guidance in this webinar will help you do that.

Don’t let your practice find out the hard way how serious CMS is about collecting overpayments. Act now to avoid simple mistakes that can snowball into thousands of dollars in penalties and protect your payments with the key information you need to be compliant. Register now.
