One of the most important administrative aspects of successfully running a clinic involves accurate Medicare billing. It requires excellent attention to detail and a thorough, up-to-date understanding of the latest regulations and procedures. It’s not an area of your clinic where you want to make any mistakes. One clinic recently found this out the hard way and has reaped expensive consequences.
More specifically, two medical doctors are facing fines of $181,758 to resolve mislabeling associated with the billing of Sanexas devices. In mid-June, US Attorney Jennifer Arbittier Williams made this announcement, naming Thomas Rocchio, DPM, and Adam Teichman, DPM, of PA Foot & Ankle Associates, LLC. As co-owners of the practice, Roccio and Teichman are both podiatrists with office locations throughout Pennsylvania.
Here's what you need to know about this stunning development and what it means for your practice.
