GAO Concludes That Improvements Are Needed to Enchance Medicare's Secondary Payer Debt Recovery Process

Jon 6546

 GOA concluded in a recent report that Medicare's system for recovering MSP debt from EGHP's is no longer cost-effective. CMS presentl;y is recovering only 38 cents for every dollar it spent on recovering activities in fiscal-year 2003. A major finding was that contractiors were funded at a rate that exceed their workload. The report also found that CMS failed to trnsmit cases to contractors and that inhibited recovery. CMS plans to launch a new recovery system that has been undevelopment for the last 6 years to increase the efficiency of its recovery operations.
