The Office of Inspector General (OIG) of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has decided not to produce an annual Work Plan anymore, but rather to publish a portfolio of each of their most considerable areas of focus. It’s no secret that a primary focus of the OIG is to prevent and provide guidance for the combat of healthcare fraud, waste and abuse. As has been the case for many years, chiropractic services and improper payments are found in the cross-hairs of the OIG. They estimate finding $257-$304 Million per year in over-payments to chiropractic providers. No wonder they are concerned! This educational hour will outline how to avoid these overpayments, what to watch within your daily practice, and how this portfolio outlines the steps to manage your risk.
