Waltz Quoted on Improper Medicare Incentive Payments

12 June 2017 Bloomberg BNA News
Partner Judy Waltz was quoted in a Bloomberg BNA article, “$729M in Medicare Incentive Payments Deemed Improper,” covering the Office of Inspector General’s payment estimate and how it decided upon that number.

Waltz explained, “The OIG arrived at the $729 million estimate after extrapolating from a much smaller sample, which attorneys have often complained about in the past.”

She also explained that the improper payments report didn’t indicate whether any of the findings had been appealed by health-care providers, so some of the improper payments may turn out to be proper when the appeals are finished.
