JANUARY 30, 2020
By George F. Indest III, J.D., M.P.A., Board Certified by The Florida Bar in Health Law. We have gotten calls from healthcare professionals, including physicians, dentists, pharmacists, mental health counselors, and assisted living facilities (ALFs) who have been placed on prepayment review after failing to challenge Medicare or Medicaid audit results. Once placed on prepayment review, the payments are held up for many months. Some providers are even forced out of business as a result.
