Waltz Quoted on Medicare’s Locum Tenens Requirements

09 January 2020 Report on Medicare Compliance News
Partner Judy Waltz was quoted in a Report on Medicare Compliance article, “Physicians Settle Locum Tenens FCA Case; Some Providers May Cut Corners in this Area,” about a settlement of false claims allegations against two physicians who billed Medicare for services provided by a temporary, substitute physician who was actually an employee.
Waltz said some providers do not understand or haven’t complied with Medicare’s locum tenens requirements. “People have to take the locum tenens provisions seriously,” she said. “It’s not just a way to get around the enrollment provisions.”
