Modify, Not Eliminate, 2-Midnight Rule

The 2-midnight rule was effective October 1, 2013 and from the start it was contentious.  The Centers for #Medicare and #Medicaid Services (#CMS) has over the past few years attempted to explain, clarify and respond to the ongoing assault from the American Hospital Association (#AHA) to eliminate the policy.  A week before it was adopted, Rich Umbdenstock, President and CEO, AHA called the regulation fundamentally flawed.  In the ensuing months, the AHA filed a lawsuit.  The CMS offered various settlements and postponement of enforcing the rule.

Last week CMS released the 2016 Proposed Payment Rule for Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System (#OPPS) with a proposal to modify the 2-midnight rule and shift enforcement of the rule to Quality Improvement Organizations (QIO).  The AHA had already expressed their dissatisfaction with CMS not addressing the 2-midnight rule in the proposed 2016 inpatient rule and had already requested in a June 15, 2015 letter to CMS the extension of the partial enforcement delay of the 2-midnight policy until March 30, 2016.

Two Significant #Healthcare Laws Celebrate Anniversaries Despite Their Initial and Ongoing Adversaries

Before #Medicare was law, many uninsured seniors lived under the fear of bankruptcy if they became ill and needed expensive medical service. When the Medicare bill was being debated, the usual conservative pundits argued that Medicare would ruin our “wonderful medical service.” A future President and strong conservative, Ronald Reagan lent his voice to an 11-minute record album called “Ronald Reagan Speaks out against Socialized Medicine.” It delivered a strong warning against the dangers of government involvement in health care. “One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine,” Reagan says. “It’s very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project.” He calls on those listening to his record to contact their Congressman and oppose the legislation.  Some swore that Medicare would be the end of good #patient care. Today, the nation’s seniors, most politicians and even providers praise Medicare coverage. Seniors hope for expanded services to cover other medical and dental needs. They are aware of the low administrative costs and excellent care that they receive under Medicare.

The story of enacting Medicare is one of persistent political struggle. There was growing recognition in the late 1950s and early 1960s of the need for federal action to help meet the high cost of healthcare for the Nation’s elderly. But there were sharply different views about how to provide medical coverage. One must also realize that as with any point in time, politics and policy, do not happen in a vacuum. In the early 1960s, the tension between states’ rights versus direct federal provisions for citizen protections was playing out on a separate track in the debate over civil rights. That debate culminated with enactment of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Title VI of that act provided that “no person in the United States shall, on the grounds of race, color or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal assistance." 2 By providing federal funds for healthcare to the elderly on the heels of the Civil Rights Act, Medicare played a major role in desegregating every hospital in the U.S.

False Claims Act and Kickback Cases Prompt New OIG Fraud Alert

The number of False Claims Act (#FCA) cases predicated on violations of #healthcare laws continues to grow as it has in recent years.  The $2.3 billion in healthcare fraud recoveries in fiscal year (FY) 2014 marks five straight years the Department of Justice (DOJ) has recovered more than $2 billion in cases involving false claims against federal healthcare programs such as #Medicare, #Medicaid and #TRICARE, the healthcare program for the military.  From January 2009 through the end of the 2014 FY, the DOJ recovered $14.5 billion in federal healthcare dollars under the FCA.  One area of growth has been FCA cases based on violations of Medicare and Medicaid Anti-Kickback and self-referral laws.  The self-referral laws (also known as the Stark Law) generally prohibit hospitals or physicians from referring patients for certain “designated health services” to persons or entities with whom the hospital or physician has a financial relationship.  In addition, the Anti-Kickback Statute (AKS) prohibits soliciting or receiving any remuneration in exchange for the purchase or lease of federally funded goods or services.  With the increased enforcement under these laws and the growing return on investment for the government for prosecuting such cases, it should come as no surprise that the Office of Inspector General (OIG) has released yet another fraud alert, this time regarding medical directorships.
