Kirk Nahra Discusses Medicare Overpayment Repaying Delays

Bloomberg BNA's Health Law Resource Center
February 24, 2015

Kirk J. Nahra, chair of Wiley Rein’s Privacy Practice and co-chair of the Health Care Practice, was quoted in a Bloomberg BNA Health Law Resource Center article discussing the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) announcement of a one-year delay in publishing a final rule that will require providers to repay Medicare overpayments within 60 days of discovering them. 

Mr. Nahra said one possible factor in the delay is that it takes a long time to develop complicated rules.  “I don’t think it is a particularly big deal, as companies will still need to address overpayment issues and will always need to factor their evaluation into any overall assessment of how enforcement could play out,” said Mr. Nahra.
