New Video: Inspector General Report on Medicare Advantage Claims Denied

Investigation Into Medicare Advantage Claim Denials

The OIG of HHS Investigation is Quite Revealing

The Office of Inspector General for HHS has concluded an investigation into Medicare Advantage companies and the extent to which claims are routinely denied.

It is sad to see that claim and procedure denials are so commonplace.”

— Christopher L. Westfall, Sr. RFC®

CHARLESTON, SC, UNITED STATES, October 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Senior Savings Network has released a video summarization of the shocking, recently-released OIG report on Medicare Advantage claim denials. The video highlights the report's findings which include the fact that 75% of appeals of denied claims ultimately resulted in the member's claim denial being reversed. Even more revealing in the report was the fact that 99% of denied claims are never appealed by the member. The OIG report is titled, "Medicare Advantage Appeal Outcomes and Audit Findings Raise Concerns About Service and Payment Denials" and can be found here: https://oig.hhs.gov/oei/reports/oei-09-16-00410.asp

The Senior Savings Network, an independent group of insurance agents who specialize in Medicare insurance for seniors across the United States, has released the video in an effort to shine a light on the OIG report, which was released without fanfare on the Health and Human Services website. Christopher L. Westfall, Sr. RFC®, owner of the Senior Savings Network and member of the Forbes Finance Council, says about the report, "It is sad to see that claim and procedure denials are so commonplace, and yet seniors on Medicare Advantage plans seldom know the information needed to submit an appeal which, as this report shows, would have overturned the denial in over 70% of the cases."

In the video, the quote from the OIG report that is perhaps most troubling points to the possible motive of such routine denials, "A central concern about the capitated model used in Medicare Advantage (also known as Medicare Part C) is the potential incentive for insurers to inappropriately deny access to services and payment in an attempt to increase their profits."

Medicare Advantage has been an increasingly popular alternative to original Medicare for seniors turning 65 and making the choice between Medicare-related coverage. Medicare Advantage plans are paid a monthly payment by Medicare in order to manage the care for its senior members, thus relieving Medicare of many variable risks associated with the fee-for-service model of the original Medicare. The alternative to this form of managed care involves having original Medicare along with a Medicare Supplement plan which pays most of the costs that original Medicare does not pay.

While the Senior Savings Network assists seniors considering their Medicare options and provides both Medicare Advantage and original Medicare with Medicare Supplement, it is critical that seniors considering their options also factor in their access to care. Seniors considering Medicare Advantage already understand that, in most cases, they must utilize a contracted network of providers, pay co-payments and other costs, but seldom understand the pre-approval and "managed" component to their care. As the OIG report stated, "Under managed care, MAO's (Advantage plans) need to balance managing healthcare costs and utilization while ensuring beneficiary access to quality care."

Christopher Westfall's videos on Medicare trends have garnered over 1.7 million views on Youtube and he is considered a thought leader in the Medicare agent community. In addition to the Senior Savings Network agency, he also runs a training service for insurance agents in the Medicare field, www.MedicareAgentTraining.com

OCR Announces Next Round of HIPAA Audits Will Focus on Enforcements

Office for Civil Rights Director announces intention to use harsher investigative tools to hold bad actors accountable

The next round of examinations will be focused on enforcement and the upcoming audits will use harsher investigative tools to hold bad actors accountable.”

— Roger Severino Director, Office for Civil Rights

SANTA MONICA, CA, UNITED STATES, October 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In 2011, The Department of Health and Human Services’ Office for Civil Rights (OCR) began auditing healthcare providers and business associates to determine overall compliance with HIPAA’s privacy and security laws. At a recent HIPAA security conference, OCR Director Roger Severino announced that the next round of examinations will be focused on enforcement and the upcoming audits will use harsher investigative tools to hold bad actors accountable.

Enforcement for noncompliant offenders may include subpoenas, legal action, reimbursements to victims, penalties, and more. Additionally, Bloomberg Law recently reported that OCR has been ratcheting up enforcement actions over the past three years, and as random HIPAA audits occur, increased penalties will most likely result.

Jeff Broudy, CEO of PCIHIPAA states, "Overall we see less than 20% of all practices and business associates have implemented the safeguards required under HIPAA. In preparation for the next wave of HIPAA audits, we are providing all healthcare providers and their business associates complimentary risk assessments and reviews so they clearly understand what is required, and to help identify the right actions to take in case of an audit."

Under the HIPAA Notification Rule, covered entities that experience a HIPAA data breach must self-report the breach to HHS. Some practices aren’t aware of the rules, so audits will help with compliance and overall enforcement. Penalties are no longer immaterial. Average fines range from $100 to $50,000 per HIPAA violation, and are capped at $1.5 million per year.

HIPAA compliance must be addressed continuously. It’s not a checkbox or a “one and done” process. Also, the same HIPAA safeguards required by a hospital or a health plan also apply to dentists, doctors, and their business associates. Anthem’s recent $16 million dollar HIPAA fine, and Mr. Severino’s position above, should be a warning to all healthcare providers and business associates.

OCR’s recent audit results show a lack of compliance throughout the industry. Recurring non-compliance issues include:

¥ Lack of execution of Business Associate Agreements
¥ No HIPAA security risk assessment on file
¥ A failure to manage identified risks
¥ Lack of transmission security
¥ Lack of appropriate internal auditing
¥ No patching of software
¥ Insider threats
¥ Improper disposal of Protected Health Information (PHI); and
¥ Insufficient data backup and contingency planning

Common risk mitigation and corrective action plans that covered entities and business associates may be required to incorporate for compliance include:

¥ Updating risk analysis and risk management plans
¥ Updating policies and procedures
¥ Training of workforce members
¥ Implementing specific technical or other safeguards
¥ Mitigating common risks like utilizing encryption solutions
¥ Improved employee and system monitoring

Broudy adds, "HIPAA requires documented remediation plans. We find this important, yet cumbersome for many dentists and doctors. Often they don’t have the resources that hospitals and larger entities possess. Not only does PCIHIPAA provide a compliance roadmap for healthcare providers, but we also include $500,000 in cyber insurance for all of our clients. HIPAA audits, ransomware attacks, data breaches, and network security incidents happen. We guarantee our clients are covered, just in case."


About Office for Civil Rights:
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office for Civil Rights (OCR) enforces federal civil rights laws, conscience and religious freedom laws, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy, Security, and Breach Notification Rules, and the Patient Safety Act and Rule, which together protect your fundamental rights of nondiscrimination, conscience, religious freedom, and health information privacy.

PCIHIPAA is an industry leader in PCI and HIPAA compliance by providing turnkey, convenient solutions for its clients.

Different techniques that Uber or Lyft drivers using their vehicles or TLC cars for rent can use to earn more five-star ratings from passengers.

Different techniques that Uber or Lyft drivers using their vehicles or TLC cars for rent can use to earn more five-star ratings from passengers”

— Friendly, www.FriendlyTLC.com

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — It’s true that many people can become successful Uber or Lyft drivers either with their own vehicles or driving TLC rental cars. However, earning that elusive five-star rating from a passenger takes even more effort. While keeping your personal vehicle or TLC cars for rent clean and welcoming is a good start, here are a few more tips that will help you earn that five-star rating.

Become Familiar with Your Location

You may have lived in a town or city all your life, that does not mean you know all the roads or the best way to travel to a destination. While having a GPS helps, getting familiar with areas that you are not generally requires driving around them first. Take a couple of hours to drive around places you are unfamiliar when you first start. That will help avoid getting lost or taking a wrong turn.

Stop Poor Reviews First

The best way to start getting five-star ratings is to avoid getting poor ones first. This means doing the basic, such as having a clean vehicle, arriving promptly, and driving safely to the destination. While most Uber and Lyft drivers will steer well clear of bad ratings, there are the occasional passengers who’ll give you one regardless, so it is best to be prepared.


One of the most common ways to get a one-star rating is to pick up the wrong passenger. It’s relatively rare, but it can happen if you do not double check with the passenger first. Asking for their name and verifying the information takes only a few seconds and can put the passenger at ease as well.

Be Courteous

Passengers can be a fickle lot, but you should always be respectful and kind. While that may not help in all situations, you may avoid misunderstandings or quell rising feelings by being kind and courteous to all your passengers.

The Little Things

Quite often, it’s the little things that help push your ratings up to the five-star level. This means offering gum or mints to those who are feeling sick, keeping the windows up, but providing air conditioning when asked, and even letting them play their own music.

Never Ask or Beg

Your service should speak for itself, so do not ask or beg for a five-star rating. Your confidence and conduct alone should be enough to earn it. By asking, you actually reduce your chances of getting a good rating because passengers will be thinking of a reason not to give it to you.

For those using their personal cars or TLC car for rent, getting that five-star rating from passengers helps boost your career considerably. Keep in mind that driving the best TLC rental cars offers one means of improving your ratings, but you can keep your success going by following simple tips that make you an in-demand Uber or Lyft driver.

Pennsylvania Medical Bankruptcy: When to File Due to Medical Debt

Medical Bankruptcy

Philadelphia Bankruptcy Lawyers

If you lack insurance coverage or have 25% or more of your income going toward medical bills, you might want to consider filing for medical bankruptcy.

We know that bankruptcy is not what you want. You’re afraid of what people may think of you for taking this route and are afraid of appearing in bankruptcy court.”

— Michael A. Cibik

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, October 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — No one plans to get sick or get into a debilitating accident. We pay exorbitant amounts for health insurance and health care costs for such events. Depending on the health plan you have, it might only cover a fraction of the medical costs one incurs. If you don’t have health care, the costs of care are astronomical. There will also be other costs, such as gas for going to the doctor’s, treatment centers and hospital. And if a spouse must take time off from work, it becomes unpaid leave after a certain number of weeks or may have to quit his or her job (or to take care of a family member), reducing the family income by as much as half. It’s not uncommon for those stricken with an illness to have fundraisers, take out personal loans, or accumulate large amounts of credit card debt. While these fundraisers help, they are usually not enough to make a dent.

If you lack insurance coverage or have 25% or more of your income going toward medical bills, you might want to consider filing for medical bankruptcy. This type of bankruptcy is no different than filing or a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. With a bankruptcy, some debts take priority over others and cannot be discharged. The debts that take priority are ones that are secured (collateral is put up as payment) and cannot be wiped (discharged). These debts include child support, alimony, and student loans. Medical bankruptcy is considered a non-priority, unsecured debt meaning it can be wiped without having collateral. The only catch is that you must be eligible for Chapter 7 (personal bankruptcy).

When people file a Chapter 7, they must pass the means test and have little to no assets. There is no limit/cap on the amount of debt you can discharge. And with a Chapter 13, you must earn above the median Pennsylvania income and have assets. You’ll be put on a payment plan set up by the IRS too. Once you make all the payments, the rest of the debt will be wiped away. However, just like being eligible for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, there is a catch for a Chapter 13. The catch is that there is a debt limit. Chapter 13 is for those who have less than $394,725 total in unsecured debts. Also, they must have less than $1,184,200 in secured debt.

When Medical Bankruptcy is the Solution

There are other options to pay medical bills:

– Negotiate with the medical provider on a settlement. If a collections agency is contacting you, you can negotiate with them as well.
– Ask the billing department if you can set up a payment plan.
– Ask your doctor’s office or hospital if there is an assistance program. Many times, there is a local charity that can help offset costs.

If these options do not provide the permanent relief you need, then medical bankruptcy is the solution. At Cibik & Cataldo, we know that bankruptcy is not what you want. You’re afraid of what people may think of you for taking this route and are afraid of appearing in bankruptcy court. Believe us; it is not an easy route to take because it involves a deep look into your finances and having you gather the paperwork, such as creating an itemized list of your expenses, financial transactions, and credit reports from the past two years. There are millions of people who are in a similar situation and have filed for bankruptcy. You’re also afraid that declaring bankruptcy, whether for medical bills or not, will hurt your credit score. Yes, it will hurt your credit score, but so will late and missed payments on your credits cards because you paid your medical bills with them, and maybe even maxed them out in the process.

Discharging Only Medical Debts

Some believe that you can discharge only medical debts in bankruptcy. This is not true. When you declare bankruptcy, you must put all of your outstanding debts on it, secured and unsecured. However, this is a good thing because it simplifies your finances and the bankruptcy process. This will give you an absolute fresh start on the path to debt relief. It will relieve a large burden so you can focus on getting better (or focus on your loved one who is ill) and get back on track financially. You’ll also be able to concentrate on getting a new job if you had to quit your old job due to the medical situation.

If you think you will endure future medical bills, such as another round of chemotherapy, then you should wait to file for bankruptcy since you can only file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy every eight years. If you have been discharged from a Chapter 7 bankruptcy and need to file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you’ll only have to wait four years. However, if you never received a discharge from the bankruptcy, no matter the bankruptcy type, then you don’t have to abide by the time limits.

Medical Bills By Default

Some are forced to declare a medical (Chapter 7) bankruptcy. If you are divorced and your ex files a Chapter 7 because of medical bills, you can be included in the bankruptcy if you cosigned on a loan(s). Even though are you are able to pay your own bills, you cannot pay the outstanding debt too. Thus, filing for bankruptcy is the best solution.

We must warn you about how it works to consolidate your debt with a consumer credit counseling service. The creditors may make a payment plan with you and you think that’s it. However, this agreement is not set in stone. The creditors can come back and try to get the rest of the money at a later date, in which you end up filing bankruptcy. This is why it is vital to contact a bankruptcy lawyer if you are thinking about using one of these consumer credit services or filing bankruptcy. Talking to an experienced bankruptcy lawyer can prevent additional interest charged by a creditor and protect your home from foreclosure. You’ll also get bankruptcy facts and what is involved with filing.

Intermountain Healthcare Awarded $1 Million Grant by the National Institutes of Health

Will help further standardize care for patients with acute respiratory failure

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, USA, October 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Intermountain Healthcare has received a grant from the National Institutes of Health to study the implementation of computerized clinical support for mechanical ventilation in patients with Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS). The study will be led by Colin K. Grissom, MD, and Raj Srivastava, MD, assistant vice president of Research.

ARDs is a progressive condition that can occur in patients who are critically ill or have significant trauma. The main complication of ARDS is that fluid leaks into the lungs, making breathing difficult or impossible due to a lack of oxygen in the blood. ARDS is associated with very high morbidity, mortality, and healthcare cost.

The awarding of the NIH grant highlights the purpose of research at Intermountain—to invest in research that will have a rapid impact on care delivery. Research at Intermountain is focused on achieving the best medical result at the lowest necessary cost. “When physicians and caregivers use evidence-based practices, they are making care safer and better for patients,” says Mark Briesacher, MD, senior vice president, chief physician executive and president of Intermountain Medical Group. “Receiving this grant underscores the importance of Intermountain’s clinicians, researchers, and caregivers teaming up to help people recover from serious illnesses and get back to health.”

The study aims to test a digital ventilation support tool and standardize the treatment for patients with ARDS. Standardization of treatment ultimately leads to improved patient outcomes, including improvements in ventilator free days, improved discharge dispositions, decreased mortality, shorter hospital stays, and higher quality of life. The study will determine the barriers and facilitators of implementation and develop strategies to improve compliance, including an electronic decision support tool for the management of ventilation, oxygenation, and weaning.
