Recent Investigations and Enforcement Trends in Hospice Care
2/5/2015 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
online event Fremont, California United States
Event Listing
Summary:

During 2012 alone, the Federal Government won or negotiated over $3.0 billion in health care fraud judgments. Reimbursement for hospice services has received special attention based on increased enforcement and reports issued by the Medicare Payment Advisory Committee regarding increased lengths of stay for hospice residents over the past several years. The OIG and DOJ have also frequently included hospice as an area of enforcement in their Work Plans and Annual Reports. Recent enforcement actions include those against Hospice of Arizona ($12 million), Ensign Group ($48 million), Hernando-Pasco Hospice ($1 million), and Hospice Care of Kansas ($6.1 million).

From 2005 to 2011 spending on hospice care for nursing home residents increased by 70%. The Federal government has increasingly targeted hospice care as an area of enforcement, and collected large sums in fines and penalties for false claims. It is clear that certain types of billing activities, marketing practices and relationships between nursing facilities and hospice care providers are the subject of intense scrutiny by the government. My session will highlight certain behaviors that have been targeted for enforcement and provide practical ideas about how to avoid becoming the next entity to potentially pay millions to the Federal government.

Summary:

Overview: OIG was established in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (Department) to identify and eliminate fraud, waste, and abuse in the Department's programs and to promote efficiency and economy in Departmental operations. OIG carries out this mission through a nationwide program of audits, inspections, and investigations. In addition, the Secretary has delegated authority to OIG to exclude from participation in Medicare, Medicaid, and other Federal health care programs Persons that have engaged in fraud or abuse and to impose civil money penalties (CMPs) for certain misconduct related to Federal health care programs.

The effect of OIG exclusion is that no Federal health care program payment may be made for any items or services furnished (1) by an excluded person or (2) at the medical direction or on the prescription of an excluded person.

The exclusion and the payment prohibition continue to apply to an individual even if he or she changes from one health care profession to another while excluded. This payment prohibition applies to all methods of Federal health care program payment, whether from itemized claims, cost reports, fee schedules, capitated payments, a prospective payment system or other bundled payment, or other payment system and Applies even if the payment is made to a State agency or a person that is not excluded.
