Report: Medicare paid $60B worth of improper payments in 2014

NHCAA SmartBrief | Jul 23, 2015

A total of $60 billion in improper, fraudulent and wasteful health care payments were made by Medicare in 2014, according to a report from the Government Accountability Office. The money, which was equivalent to more than 10% of the Medicare program’s overall budget, was paid to health care providers and hospitals who listed false or incorrect billing addresses. The report also shows that the status of physicians’ medical licenses were not properly checked by CMS, resulting in continued billing by doctors with revoked or suspended licenses.
