The Compliance Guy podcast turned to business litigation partner Jesse Witten and health care partner Steve Lokensgard to discuss Medicare’s 60-day rule and its effect on Medicare and Medicaid managed care plans.
In the podcast, the attorneys further examine an article they coauthored for the American Health Law Association’s Health Law Connections publication titled “Does the 60-Day Rule Apply to Overpayments That Providers Receive From Medicare Advantage and Medicaid Managed Care Plans?”
Witten and Lokensgard focused on the comprehensive legal research they performed to learn more about the 60-day rule requiring Medicare and Medicaid overpayments to be returned and reported 60 days after being identified. They dove deep into the language of the law and the compliance issues that have arisen from the “gray areas” of the 60-day rule.
Further, the attorneys comment on the perspectives of the rule and similar laws from both litigation and compliance professionals’ points of view.
