PROGRAM INTEGRITY; UPDATE ON TPE, SMRC, UPIC, AND OTHER CLAIM RECOVERY EFFORTS BY CMS (CONCURRENT) | Monday, September 19, 2022 (10:30 a.m. – 12:10 p.m.)
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (“CMS”) Center for Program Integrity (“CPI”) is claiming millions of dollars have been improperly paid to hospice agencies. These CPI audits review hospice records to ensure the patients are eligible for service, the service provided is appropriate and the providers are authorized to deliver the care. Claim recoveries can take various forms, including Targeted Probe and Educate (“TPE”), Supplemental Medical Review Contractor (“SMRC”) reviews, Unified Program Integrity Contractors (“UPIC”) reviews, and other reviews resulting in claim denials. Post COVID, an acceleration of these programs is expected. This session will focus on current and planned activities, including identification of risk. PEPPER Report highlights and their importance will also be discussed.
