2015 Hardship Exception Application for the Medicare EHR Incentive Program

There were several reasons why CMS is giving providers additional time to submit applications and avoid adjustments to their Medicare payments in 2017. Some providers were having difficulty in reporting in 2015 because CMS did not release its final rule on stage 2 meaningful use changes until early October. By the time the rules came out, there were less than 90 days left to measure performance. Also, there are new application forms for hardship exception. CMS will also be more lenient for hardship exemptions including issues with internet connectivity, lack of availability to certified software and lack of face-to-face patient interaction.

The Differences Between Cigna Open Access and PPO

For the CIGNA PPO, patients pay up to $30 for in-network visits and $50 to $70 for out-of-network visits. For the Open Access plan, patients pay $20 to $35 for in-network visits and $60 to $90 for out-of-network visits.

Avoid and Report Medicare Fraud and Abuse

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

Medicare billing fraud means knowingly billing Medicare — possibly over and over again — for products and services that were not medically necessary, accurately coded, or for an actual beneficiary. You can help detect Medicare billing fraud by carefully reviewing your payment notice. This is the notice you get whenever a doctor or health care provider bills Medicare or your insurance company for a health care product or service. The notice identifies the product or service and lists the total amount billed, the amount Medicare or your insurance company paid to the provider, and the amount you owe.
