The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently published a notification to all providers regarding updates to the policy and instructions to portions of the overpayment process. If a Medicare overpayment remains outstanding and collectible, an Intent to Refer (ITR) letter will be issued 66 days from the initial demand letter date.

This is a change from 120 days from the initial demand letter date. This new policy will take effect on July 7, 2014.

Please make your staff aware of these changes.
