ABSTRACT
The article discusses the enhanced efforts of Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) against fraud. It notes that CMS consolidates its fraud detection efforts, strengthens its supervision of medical equipment suppliers and home health agencies, and launches national recovery audit contractor program. CMS acting administrator Kerry Weems said that the potential for waste, fraud and abuse in Medicare is high because they pay for medical services and items without checking every claim.
