Why Compliance?
With increasing frequency, the government is finding fault with billing and coding practices, often costing physicians thousands of dollars in overpayments, interest and penalties. The news media abounds with stories of physicians being sued, or criminally indicted, for allegedly committing fraud, waste or abuse. Recoveries in the millions of dollars are being received by whistleblowers in qui tam actions, which encourage new whistleblowers seeking a quick payoff. Commercial payers are now following the government's lead and conducting billing audits and, after applying the same rules as Medicare, including extrapolation, are seeking substantial repayments from physician practices.
