MACRA, fraud and the winds of change for podiatry
from Podiatry Management
With the Affordable Care Act, the rigors of MACRA, the new Merit Incentive Payment System, and the Alternative Payment Models, podiatrists are going to have to identify how practice will change in the next few years. With the escalating costs that have burdened Medicare since its inception, CMS has instituted a Medicare Fraud Strike Force to recoup all the monies that were considered paid to providers who allegedly committed fraud. Currently, CMS has collected over $8.9 billion in their efforts to collect the revenues paid to over 2,900 providers who billed Medicare fraudulently.
