OIG Report Released 

The OIG released their report entitled Limited Oversight of Home Health Agency OASIS Data. It contains some interesting facts including:

  • 6% of 2009 claims are missing-- representing $1 Billion in Medicare payments. Is this an indication of fraud? 
  • 15% of OASIS data sets were submitted late.
  • CMS failed to meet key responsibilities.

The OIG has thoughts and recommendations for penalties to be imposed.
