Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act - The 60-Day Clock is Ticking. Now What?? Co-Chair Barbra Nault of Bankston Gronning O’Hara PC is the guest speaker. The Act requires health care providers to report and return Medicare and Medicaid overpayments within 60 days of the date the overpayment is identified or the applicable cost report is due. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services issued a set of proposed regulations for the Medicare program in February 2012 (the third set so far related to overpayment recovery). The proposed regulations sparked a lot of discussion, but there is still no final rule on implementation. With providers facing potential False Claims Act liability for violating the repayment provisions in the Act, the million-dollar question (no pun intended) is what to do if a potential overpayment is discovered. 1 General CLE Credit. Annual elections will be held briefly. Phone-ins from other locations in Alaska are welcomed and encouraged.
