TOPIC:

Medicare Integrity Programs and Targeted Probe and Education

Under the direction of Congress and through various Fiscal Intermediaries and other contractors/subcontractors, CMS monitors whether Medicare funds are being expended appropriately.  These contractors such as Recovery Auditors (RAC), Universal Program Integrity Program (UPIC), Zone Program Recovery Contractor (ZPIC) and the Targeted Probe and Education are just a few of those programs.  They identify the area of focus through a variety of sources e.g. the PEPPER Report, the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) Work Plan, red flags raised through internal algorithms in the Common Working File and other sources.  Attend this session and learn more about the process which allows for the identification of actions which would prevent or mitigate potential problem areas.  It is not a matter of IF but a matter of WHEN.
