In an article published by BNA’s Health Care Daily Report, Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Danielle Sloane discussed findings from an Office of Inspector General (OIG) audit report citing improper payment rates by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) in fiscal year 2016. “The report reflects ongoing program integrity challenges faced by various HHS programs, and it’s evident the improper payment rates are still higher than expectations and in some case higher than in 2015 … The findings are likely to support continued program integrity and enforcement efforts,” Danielle pointed out.
