CMS Proposes New Regulation Governing Overpayments

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued a proposed regulation that would give health care providers 60 days to return Medicare overpayments from the time they become aware that they have been overpaid.

Providers that fail to return payments within the new guidelines would be subject to criminal and civil penalties

The 2009 Affordable Care Act called for such a regulation.  Interested parties have 60 days to submit comments in writing.  The proposed regulation can be downloaded hereiStock_000014445371XSmall.
