Executive Summary

We determined that Boston Medical Center (the Hospital) submitted 7,520 claims with overpayments totaling approximately $90,000 for physician services for calendar years 2006 through 2010. The Hospital, billing on behalf of its physicians, incorrectly coded these claims by using nonfacility place-of-service codes for services that were performed in one of the Hospital's outpatient facilities.
