Date of Death Audits for DME & Inpatient Facilities


Beware, this is just one region that has published the date of death audit for DME and inpatient facilities such as rehab, hospital, LTC, SNF facilities.  This audit is done periodically and most suppliers are hit with a few thousand to upwards of $20K in overpayment refund requests.  Be prepared with a reserve of cash based on the size of your business.  At a minimum, I would suggest a set back of $5K even if you are outside of Region A.  Region A tends to publish this type of information earlier than other areas. These audits typically take place about every three years which is why the dollar amounts are so high.

We all know that payment after date of death will never be paid; however accidents will happen.  Ensure your billing staff doesn’t just “resubmit” claims without working the denial, this can cause a fraud audit even if you are not getting paid!  Likewise, if payment does occur it is usually less than 90 days from date of death when family fail to contact suppliers because they think the equipment belongs to the patient.  It could be a pick up ticket was not entered or a facility span date was not stopped at date of death instead of the full episode.  Note these are being audited by the RAC!

Your Duck is Dead


I seem to share bad and/or scary crazy news so thought I would share a laugh today. This is a cute joke that is clean and will make you laugh and you can share with patients.

Your Duck is Dead

A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. As she laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird’s chest.

After a moment or two, the vet shook his head and sadly said, “I’m sorry, your duck, Cuddles, has passed away.”

The distressed woman wailed, “Are you sure?”

“Yes, I am sure. Your duck is dead,” replied the vet..

“How can you be so sure?” she protested. “I mean you haven’t done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or something.”

The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the room. He returned a few minutes later with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck’s owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from top to bottom. He then looked up at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head.

The vet patted the dog on the head and took it out of the room. A few minutes later he returned with a cat. The cat jumped on the table and also delicately sniffed the bird from head to foot. The cat sat back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and strolled out of
the room.

The vet looked at the woman and said, “I’m sorry, but as I said, this is most definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck.”

The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and produced a bill, which he handed to the woman..

The duck’s owner, still in shock, took the bill. “$150!” she cried, “$150 just to tell me my duck is dead!”

The vet shrugged, “I’m sorry. If you had just taken my word for it, the bill would have been $20, but with the Lab Report and the Cat Scan, it’s now $150.”

PECOS: Uncover the mystery! Extended 1/3/2011


**NEWS FLASH** Found at least one gov’t contract with an extension notice of Jan 3, 2011 posted!

What is PECOS? Basically, this is an online 855 application process which is also linked to NPPES (NPI database).  The official name  is Medicare Provider Enrollment Chain and Ownership System.

Where did the info in PECOS come from? They uploaded (in some fashion) from the fiscal intermediary that processes your 855 paper enroll applications.

Why do I need to bother if they have the information from 855? The information in many circumstances is inaccurate and it can stop your cash flow reimbursement.  My guess is, as with any software or data conversion, exceptions to eliminate terminated data were not built in sufficiently.  So, with that said, it is very possible information is incorrect which can result in revoked provider number. For example I recently worked on a provider’s PECOS records that showed locations that have been closed for several months. If the Medicare contractors visit locations or call a phone number that is no longer valid including an invalid area code, they can suspend or revoke the provider number.

You must register in PECOS.  This means you must obtain a username and password in PECOS to review and validate all your information.  Before you begin view and print (save to complete) the 855 they show. You may need copies of your previously submitted 855’s. If you did not keep a copy, do so for all applications in the future.  You can save the information and go back to finish if need be.   Do not click “begin submission” until you are 100% certain you are finished.  Any changes will require a “submission” then you must print out the certification documents for signature to submit hard copy to the address that prints on confirmations.

Do not let incorrect information or failure to register in PECOS stop your PESOS (Cash Flow).  Register deadline for PECOS by UPDATED**7/6/2010 or 1/1/2011 (depending on what article you read) will stop your Medicare payments also.   ADDED**This is the latest note I found on CMS’ website “July 6: Please read the news release found at the following location http://www.cms.gov/apps/media/press/release.asp?Counter=3774 , the January 2011 deadline was superseded by a statutorily established deadline in the Affordable care act. As soon as a firm enforcement date of the regulations has been determined we will announce it.”

This is not going away.  It will take 1-1.5 hours to gather corporate and provider documents.  It will take about 2 hours per provider record to review documents, data, make corrections, make necessary copies of documents, sign and mail.

I have provided a list of numerous documents that you should have available for this as well as site visits.  I recommend maintaining all the important records in a three ring binder to be handy for site inspectors.

If you need help getting this done, we can help with this project.  We will register you, save all log in data for you, save the existing PECOS record, make necessary updates based on the documents provided, save revised document, print all certification forms to PDF.  All documents will be password protected and returned to you by email for $289.00 per provider number.  We can overnight the certification pages and a CD with all documents back to you for an extra $30.00 for all provider records being returned.  Please contact us so that we may sign a confidentiality contract.

Physician Fee Cut on Hold & 2.2% Increase for now


Docs Get Six-Month Reprieve; Industry Looking for Longer Fix
WASHINGTON—President Obama signed legislation Friday canceling a scheduled 21.2 percent pay cut for Medicare physicians and instead giving them a 2.2 percent increase. While it offers the docs some current relief, the new measure is effective only through the end of November.

That means months, a decade even, of congressional wrangling over the issue could start up again before the year’s end, offering HME advocates another shot at a possible legislative vehicle that could carry language to stop competitive bidding.

The American Medical Association and other physician groups have been urging Congress to revise Medicare’s current “sustainable growth rate,” or SGR, payment formula—which has resulted in annual pay decreases for physicians over the past decade—in favor of a permanent fix. But the cost of such a change has quashed any long-term action.

“Delaying the problem is not a solution,” the AMA said in a statement issued last week. “It doesn’t solve the Medicare mess Congress has created with a long series of short-term Medicare patches over the last decade—including four to avert the 2010 cut alone.”

In December, the physician pay cut “will be a whopping 23 percent, increasing to nearly 30 percent in January,” the statement read.

“The baby boomers begin entering Medicare in six months, and if the physician payment problem isn’t fixed, these new Medicare patients won’t be able to find a doctor to treat them,” the AMA said.

In a Friday afternoon legislative update, Waterloo, Iowa-based VGM Group said because the cuts to physician reimbursement have only been postponed through November, “the temporary ‘doc fix’ will need to be addressed once again towards the end of the year. This will offer another vehicle to eliminate competitive bidding.”

In the meantime, the group urged continued support for H.R. 3790 to repeal the bidding program.

LATE-BREAKING: CMS’ proposed physician fee schedule for 2011, released late Friday, calls for a 6.1 percent cut for Medicare physician services that would take effect Jan. 1, 2011.

As outlined under health reform, the proposed regulation would also expand Round 2 of the DMEPOS competitive bidding program from 70 MSAs to 91, for a total of 100 in the national bidding program.
