HHS NEWS: Obama Administration & Expanded Efforts to Fight Fraud
The government’s focus on Medicare fraud continues to show positive outcomes. The current Administration announced this week that over $5.6 billion in fraudulent payments had been recovered in 2011. This was a 167% increase in recoveries from 2008. While only a portion of this would be specific to Radiation Oncology, with these numbers, I would assume the initiative to continue and facilities and providers should be motivated to ensure compliance.
