Preventing Fraud, Waste, and Abuse

Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) defines fraud as an intentional deception or misrepresentation that someone makes, knowing it is false, that could result in an unauthorized payment. Abuse involves actions that are inconsistent with accepted, sound medical, business, or fiscal practices. Abuse directly or indirectly results in unnecessary costs to the program through improper payments. Waste means the over-utilization of services not caused by criminally negligent actions; waste involves the misuse of resources.

Most managed care or government-sponsored carriers require that extensive or expensive procedures are reviewed before they are performed, if the provider wants to receive payment.



Article - The importance of the Aging Report

At the time of service, most provider facilities do not collect 100% of the amount that gets charged to their patients. Therefore, over time the accounts receivable will become past due and there must be some way of keeping track of and attempting to collect these amounts.
