Six months ago, CMS delayed repayment of Medicare advance loans, but the recoupment process is about to begin.  Providers need to be prepared to navigate the repayment process.  In total, CMS distributed $106 billion in advance payments.

“They need to know what the total amount of the advanced payment was,” Beth Prince, vice president of revenue management services at Corridor, told Home Health Care News. “You have to know what your starting balance is because when you submit claims, you’re going to have recoupment in varying amounts over time.”

Repayments are set to begin this month, and it is essential that providers who took part in these loans are clear on exactly what is being recouped, Prince explained.
