The AASM has signed onto a letter which responds to CMS’ proposed rule on Reporting and Returning Overpayments. As you may know, the proposal obligates physicians to report and return overpayments that if not completed carries significant legal and financial penalties. The letter comments on several aspects of the proposed rule, including:
- 60-Day reporting period;
- 10 Year look back period;
- Overpayment Initiative Duplication; and
- Due process protections.
