Review of Wisconsin Physicians Service Insurance Corporation High-Dollar Payments for Medicare Part B Claims Processed by Wheatlands Administrative Services, Inc., for the Period January 1, 2003, Through December 31, 2005

Filed under: Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services

During calendar years 2003 through 2005, Wheatlands Administrative Services, Inc. (Wheatlands), overpaid Medicare providers $106,000 for 13 high-dollar ($10,000 or more) Part B claims. Providers refunded 6 overpayments totaling $54,000 before we started fieldwork, and 7 overpayments totaling $52,000 remained outstanding. We issued our report to Wisconsin Physicians Service Insurance Corporation (WPS) because it assumed responsibility as the Medicare Part B carrier for these providers in 2008. WPS agreed with our recommendations.
