The Health Reform Act specifies a procedure for providers receiving overpayments. Section 6402 of the PPACA states that Medicare overpayments are to repaid to the government within 60 days of discovery. The law however raises a number of questions which providers hoped would be answered in recent rules issued by CMS. However, clarifications are still needed, and because the law is already effective, providers need guidance in implementing this law. It is critical that overpayments be handled strictly in accordance with the requirements, because failure to do so could result in a fraud claim with possible civil or even criminal penalties.
