UPMC settles $1M billing errors case



Published: Wed, July 31, 2013 @ 3:40 p.m.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Authorities say the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center has agreed to pay nearly $1 million to settle a case of Medicare billing errors.

The Department of Justice says in a release today that UPMC told authorities about the billing errors connected with a home health care affiliate and the case was settled without litigation. The settlement of about $956,000 ends the case.

The case concerned Medicare billings for home health care services that didn’t include a documented face-to-face encounter with a physician, as required by regulations.

why do they call it fraud when one company does it and an error when another does it. I never noticed the justice department getting involved in "errors" on a "case"

If you do it, it's fraud. If they do it, it's an error.
