Barbara Rowland and Elizabeth Hein Present on the Future of the CMS 60-Day Overpayment Rule at PBI's 24th Annual Health Law Institute on March 14
On March 14, 2018, at 11:00 am ET, Barbara Rowland, Washington, D.C. Office Chair of the Firm's White Collar Group, and Elizabeth M. Hein of the Firm's Health Care Practice Group, co-presented "What’s the Future of the CMS 60-Day Overpayment Rule? Can Negligence Really Trigger False Claims Act Exposure?" at the Pennsylvania Bar Institute's (PBI) 24th Annual Health Law Institute at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia, PA
The presentation included a discussion of:
- The 60-Day Rule application to Medicaid and Medicare.
- The must-watch, ongoing federal litigation brought by United Healthcare Insurance Company’s Part C plans against the United States to square agency rulemaking imposing a negligence standard for addressing overpayments on Medicare Part C and D providers with the False Claims Act's stricter “knowledge” requirement.
- Steps that providers can take to mitigate against potential fraud liability in this uncertain regulatory landscape.
