12.29.2359 hours ago

1. Insurance companies use these two types of utilization review to verify that a patient actually requires the medical care they’re receiving. Concurrent reviews are performed while a patient is still hospitalized, while retrospective reviews take place after treatment is finished and the patient has been discharged. If a reviewer finds that treatment isn’t necessary, the insurance company may “take back payment for a previously paid claim or deny payment on previously provided healthcare services,” says VanFleet. Medical procedures that are uncovered by insurance can be a weighty expense for patients, so healthcare workers need to keep these reviews in mind when providing care.

Patient Inducements: Gifts, Discounts, Waiving CoPays

Patient Jdsupra.com Get All

6 hours ago

1. Item or Service Does Not Induce Referrals or Influence the Receipt of Care. The AKS and CMPL are not violated so long as there is no improper intent or knowledge that the free item or service would induce referrals for or receipt of items or services payable by federal healthcare programs.
2. Item or Service of Nominal Value. The OIG has interpreted the CMPL to allow items or services of “nominal value,” which the OIG interprets as no more than $15 per item or $75 in the aggregate per patient per year.
3. Demonstrated Financial Need. As a general rule, the AKS and CMPL do not prohibit a provider from discounting or otherwise offering free items or services to patients who cannot afford to pay their bills.
4. Waivers of Co-Payments or Cost Sharing Amounts. The CMPL expressly defines “remuneration” to include “the waiver of copayment, coinsurance and deductible amounts (or any part thereof)”, but it excepts.
5. Preventive Care Items or Services. The CMPL regulations define “remuneration” to also exclude: Incentives given to individuals to promote the delivery of preventive care services where the delivery of such services is not tied (directly or indirectly) to the provision of other services reimbursed in whole or in part by Medicare or an applicable State health care program.
6. Items or Services Promote Access to Care. The CMPL regulations also define “remuneration” to exclude: Items or services that improve a beneficiary’s ability to obtain items and services payable by Medicare or Medicaid, and pose a low risk of harm to Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries and the Medicare and Medicaid programs by–
7. Not Tied to Other Care. Based on the OIG commentary discussed above, there may be relatively minimal risk even if the hospital cannot fit within one of the foregoing regulatory exceptions so long as the provider’s program promotes healthcare while minimizing the risk of fraud and abuse.

Legal Cases and State Legislative Actions Related to the ACA

Legal Ncsl.org Get All

12.29.2352 hours ago

1. Eighteen states—along with two individuals—argued before the U.S. Supreme Court that, because federal lawmakers reduced the mandate’s shared responsibility payment to $0 through the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the individual mandate is unconstitutional. This argument was based on the Supreme Court’s 2012 ruling that the individual mandate was a tax. If the shared responsibility payment is $0, the individual mandate generates no money and therefore cannot be a tax, the challengers argued. The challengers also argued the rest of the health law cannot be “severed” from the individual mandate and therefore the entire ACA is unconstitutional. Twenty-one states, along with the House of Representatives, defended the federal law, arguing that the individual mandate is constitutional—and that it is severable from the rest of the ACA if the Supreme Court were to rule that the mandate is unconstitutional. These states also challenged whether the states and individuals filing the lawsuit had st...

1. The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA)is perhaps the most important federal civil rights legislation that affects employers when developing and implementing drug-free workplace policies. It prohibits all U.S. employers with more than 15 employees from discriminating against qualified job applicants and employees because of a physical disability. The ADA does not, in any way, prohibit employers from having a drug-free workplace policy, nor does it provide any special protection to individuals who are currently using illegal drugs. However, it does make it illegal for employers to discriminate against recovering alcoholics and drug users who have already sought treatment for their addiction. Under the terms of the ADA: 1. Employers cannot fire, refuse to hire, or refuse to promote someone simply because she or he has a history of substance use. 2.
