|Text of Recommendation|| |
We recommend that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services strengthen its system controls to detect and prevent improper payments to providers for incorrectly billed: (1) co-surgery services, (2) assistant-at-surgery services, and (3) duplicate services—which could have saved approximately $4,939,586 during our audit period.
