Partner Judy Waltz was quoted in a Bloomberg BNA article, “Consolidation Comes to Health-Care Anti-Fraud Contractors,” covering the consolidation of Medicare anti-fraud contractors as the Trump administration looks to cut costs and provide consistent policies.

Waltz was quoted discussing the effectiveness of cutting costs, explaining that the “CMS put the brakes on some contractor consolidations previously because it said it was worried about reducing competition in the Medicare Administrative Contractor market.”

Waltz was also quoted on the disruptions that occur with contractor changes. She said that although consolidation could bring about a more unified approach to contractor policies, “Medicare contractors have changed frequently over the past decade, which has led to some confusion over local coverage determinations and other policies, as well as lost files.”
