December Deadline Approaching for New York Medicaid Providers to Certify Compliance Program Requirements
Providers who bill $500,000.00 or more to the New York Medicaid program in any 12-month period should be aware that, pursuant to Social Services Law § 363-d, 18 NYCRR Part 521, and the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005, they are required to adopt and implement a compliance program targeted at identifying and eliminating fraud and abuse. Each December, every such provider must continually certify that a compliance program remains in effect and complies with applicable law. Note that the compliance program requirement also applies to third-party billing companies which submit $500,000.00 or more in Medicaid claims on behalf of others during a 12-month period.
