Partner Raja Sékaran’s article, “With every new year, a new lookback period for Medicare claims audits,” was published in the June 2019 issue of Compliance Today Magazine.  Intended for healthcare compliance professionals, the article goes into detail on the various self-audit standards for identifying potential Medicare overpayments and proposes a way to integrate the various standards.

Mr. Sékaran explains why voluntary self-audits of Medicare claims should be part of any provider's compliance program.  Additionally, he discusses recommended lengths of lookback periods for overpayments that resulted from errors versus false claims, and how inadequate auditing can implicate additional liability under the False Claims Act.  This article contains crucial information for any provider that submits Medicare claims.
