Updated Medicare Fraud And Abuse Prevention Materials

Lilly Hummel

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has materials to support providers’ efforts to prevent, detect, and report suspected Medicare fraud and abuse. CMS has a poster that providers can print or incorporate into their Compliance and Ethics Program flyers that are posted in the buildings. This February, the agency updated its booklet summarizing many relevant fraud and abuse laws that are applicable to all federal health care programs, including both Medicare and Medicaid. Nursing centers are encouraged to review this material for the Phase 3 Requirements of Participation Compliance and Ethics Program.
