CMS Publishes Proposed Rule on Self Disclosure of Overpayments

AGG Managing Partner Glenn P. Hendrix, Of Counsel Jennifer Downs Burgar and Associate Lanchi Nguyen authored an article that was published in Becker’s ASC Review on March 2, 2012, titled “CMS Publishes Proposed Rule on Self Disclosure of Overpayments.” On February 16, 2012, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a long-awaited proposed rule to establish regulations regarding the reporting and returning of overpayments to the Medicare program (77 Fed. Reg. 9179 (Feb. 16, 2012)). The proposed regulations at 42 C.F.R. Part 401, subpart D would implement section 6402(a) of the Affordable Care Act (Public Law 111-148), in part, by outlining the disclosure and repayment policies and procedures applicable to Medicare Part A and Part B providers and suppliers.
