The recent expansion of government regulations make healthcare providers vulnerable to allegations of fraud, abuse and the misuse of private healthcare information. RAC (Recovery Audit Contractors), ZPIC (ZoneProgram Integrity Contractors) and Commercial Payor task forces are aggressively reviewing Medicare and Medicaid providers for compliance with proper billing, HIPAA, STARK and EMTALA laws.
While commonly referred to as “fraud prevention efforts,” the allegations in these audits are rarely fraud or abuse, instead, they’re subjective allegations that leave every healthcare provider vulnerable to being accused of improper billing
