CMS Releases Proposed Rule on Civil Monetary Penalties for Medicare Secondary Payer Reporting Failures

CMS Releases Proposed Rule on Civil Monetary Penalties for Medicare Secondary Payer Reporting Failures


The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released a proposed rule and fact sheet on calculating and imposing civil monetary penalties (CMPs) when a group health plan fails to comply with Section 111 Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) reporting requirements.

CMS identifies the circumstances in which CMPs may be imposed including failure to report, reporting and/or maintaining inaccurate information, and making errors in reporting that exceed a certain threshold.

Public comments on the proposed rule are due by April 20, 2020.
