Protect your dental practice from government scrutiny — watch for Medicare and Medicaid overpayments
Under the Affordable Care Act, healthcare providers must report and return Medicare or Medicaid overpayments within 60 days after an overpayment is identified, or the date a corresponding cost report is due, whichever is later. But it can be challenging to figure out what constitutes an "identified" overpayment. Does the 60-day clock start when a healthcare provider actually knows there is an overpayment, or is suspicion about a possible overpayment enough to start the 60-day clock?
