Lawmakers: CMS falling short on efforts to stop fraud, waste

NHCAA SmartBrief | May 25, 2016

Lawmakers criticized the CMS for not doing enough to eliminate fraud, waste and abuse in the Medicare and Medicaid programs. Reports from the Office of the Inspector General show that fingerprint-based criminal background checks were not used in 37 states and provider site visits were not done in 11 states prior to Medicaid enrollment. The OIG also found that 12% of providers terminated for cause in 2011 were still active in Medicaid programs of other states in 2012 because there is no comprehensive CMS database to identify terminated providers.
