Don’t Miss these Great Year-End HME Industry Educational Opportunities
AAHomecare – Jeff Baird, Esq. and Denise Leard, Esq., with Brown & Fortunato will present a webinar hosted by the American Association for Homecare on Dec. 13 at 2:30-3:30 Eastern titled “Six-Year Lookback Audits: How to Prepare and Respond”. The Affordable Care Act includes the 60-day overpayment rule that requires DME suppliers to refund overpayments within 60 days of identification. What many suppliers are not aware of is that if an overpayment is identified, either internally or externally, suppliers are mandated by law to perform a six-year lookback audit. If suppliers do not comply with this rule, they are at risk for false claim penalties. This program will discuss the details and provide steps to meet the rule requirements. Click here to register.
