No payer is immune to ever-evolving fraud, waste, and abuse schemes. Improper payments by Medicaid and Medicare exceed $88 billion annually and is rapidly increasing across the United States. However, methods and tools preventing, identifying and recovering improper payments is evolving just as rapidly as the schemers.
Panelists focus on how the proper technology and program design drives data-based decisions, including insights from a complete episode of care, and specific identification of what expert clinicians, coders and investigators should target in their review in order to more efficiently identify improper payments and trends.
