Title Medicare Compliance Review of Heartland Regional Medical Center for Calendar Years 2010 and 2011.
Publication Date Dec 2013

Abstract This review is part of a series of hospital compliance reviews. Using computer matching, data mining, and data analysis techniques, we identified hospital claims that were at risk for noncompliance with Medicare billing requirements. For calendar year (CY) 2011, Medicare paid hospitals $151 billion, which represents 45 percent of all fee-for-service payments; therefore, the Office of Inspector General must provide continual and adequate oversight of Medicare payments to hospitals. The objective of this review was to determine whether Heartland Regional Medical Center (Heartland) complied with Medicare requirements for billing inpatient and outpatient services on selected claims.
