MEDICARE QUARTERLY PROVIDER COMPLIANCE NEWSLETTER - Avoid Billing Errors

December 30, 2014

Medicare Quarterly Provider Compliance Newsletters are an educational tool designed to provide education on how to avoid common billing errors and other erroneous activities when dealing with the Medicare Program. It includes guidance to help health care professionals address and avoid the top issues of the particular Quarter.

There are more than one billion claims processed for the Medicare Fee-For-Service (FFS) program each year. Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) process these claims, make payments to more than one million health care professionals in accordance with Medicare regulations, and provide education on how to submit accurately coded claims.

Despite actions to prevent improper payments, it is impossible to prevent them all due to the large volume of claims. The Medicare Learning Network’s Medicare Quarterly Provider Compliance Newsletter helps health care professionals to understand the latest findings identified by MACs and other contractors such as Recovery Auditors and the Comprehensive Error Rate Testing (CERT) review contractor, in addition to other governmental organizations such as the Office of the Inspector General (OIG).

The newsletter is released on a quarterly basis. An archive of previously-issued newsletters, which includes keyword and provider-specific indices, is available on the CMS website.
