A PPS Alert article titled “OIG continues to eye Part A billing, hospitalizations of SNF residents in 2015” discusses the Office of the Inspector
General’s FY 2015 work plan detailing five priority areas where the OIG will focus its monitoring, auditing and enforcement efforts. Partner Jason Greis is
quoted extensively, offering predictions and recommendations regarding the five areas: Medicare Part A billing by skilled nursing facilities (SNFs),
questionable billing for Part B services, state verification of plans of correction, background checks for long-term care workers, and hospitalization of
SNF residents for manageable or preventable conditions. Subscribers can read the article in the January 2015 edition of HCPro’s PPS Alert for Long-Term Care.
