Fraud, Abuse, and Operational Compliance
Helping you manage your optometry practice’s financial activity the right way. Get compliant in an afternoon!
When Money Changes Hands, Mistakes Are Common. Is Your Practice Covered?
In 2018 alone, practices settled with the Department of Justice for over $2.8 billion for violating the federal False Claims Act. Even the most honest of mistakes can be considered healthcare fraud and penalized accordingly. At PCS, we’ve found that most eye doctors simply don’t have the time or the expertise to keep up with every little change in the rules governing Medicare reimbursement or everyday billing and coding in their practices. Ask yourself these questions:
Are you aware of when reimbursement standards change for Medicare and Medicaid? Is your staff kept up to date when certain codes are no longer used? Are you confident in the proper ways to handle patient billing?
