The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) now can take back overpayments for up to three years. However, an amendment to the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, which appears as part of the Proposed Physician Fee Schedule for 2014, extends the period to five years.

“That means, CMS would have two additional years to request funds to be returned,” said Jeri Biedenkopf, R.N., ISMA practice advisor. This change raises the possibility that physicians could face more overpayment take-backs in the future.

As advised in the last issue, if you’d like to submit comments on this rule and the proposed fee schedule for next year, go to the July 19 Federal Register here.

The deadline for comments is Sept. 6.
