Medicare Compliance Review of Sierra View Medical Center
Sierra View Medical Center (the Medical Center), located in Porterville, California, complied with Medicare billing requirements for 5 of the 30 inpatient and outpatient claims we reviewed. However, the Medical Center did not fully comply with Medicare billing requirements for the remaining 25 claims, resulting in overpayments of approximately $798,000. These overpayments occurred primarily because the Medical Center did not have adequate controls to prevent the incorrect billing of Medicare claims within the selected risk areas that contained errors.
