Medicare Compliance Review of Via Christi Hospital for Calendar Years 2009 and 2010
Via Christi Hospital (the Hospital) (operating in Kansas) complied with Medicare billing requirements for 39 of the 67 inpatient and outpatient claims we reviewed. However, the Hospital did not fully comply with Medicare billing requirements for the remaining 28 claims, resulting in net overpayments totaling $170,000 for calendar years 2009 and 2010. Overpayments occurred primarily because the Hospital did not have adequate controls to prevent incorrect billing of Medicare claims.
