Waltz Comments on Consolidation of Four CMS Anti-Fraud Programs Into One

08 November 2018 Bloomberg Law News
Partner Judith Waltz was quoted in a Bloomberg Law article, "Medicare Herds Four Anti-Fraud Programs Under One Roof," about a move by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to create one mega anti-fraud program out of four component programs.

Waltz said the new program will facilitate data sharing by removing some of the silos between Medicare and Medicaid. Many health-care providers and suppliers participate in both programs, she noted, and fraud, waste and abuse are likely to cross back and forth between the two. The Medicaid program also gets a lot of federal funding, she said, so the CMS has a vested interest in rooting fraud out of that program.
