Lacktman Comments on Report About Improper Medicare Telehealth Payments

16 April 2018 FierceHealthcare News
Partner Nate Lacktman was quoted in a FierceHealthcare article, “OIG identifies $3.7M in improper Medicare telehealth payments, which could lead to more scrutiny for providers,” about an audit of Medicare payments for telehealth services.

As a result of the findings, Lacktman said, providers can expect more scrutiny of telehealth claims moving forward. “The big takeaway is to spend more attention to billing compliance,” he said. “The telehealth arrangements 5-10 years ago were built on a self-pay cash model. Now they are expanding and that’s really going to change the game for a lot of providers.”
