Morristown Medicare Overpayment Appeal Lawyer
It is not uncommon for Medicare or Medicaid to hire a physician auditor to review billing statements that have been submitted for payment. These auditors examine the records to determine errors or possible fraud. For exaple, they will attempt to determine if procedures were unnecessarily divided to increase the costs charged. If they believe they have found an error, they will extrapolate that finding into a percentage of every bill that Medicare or Medicaid has paid over a period of months or years. These Medicare/Medicaid overpayment refund request letters, then, seek repayment on allegedly fraudulent bills. This letter can be intimidating and lead to a stressful time for your practice.

A skilled New Jersey attorney can fully examine the letter and your billing history to develop a strong strategy for appeal.
