HHS Employs New Tougher Standards in Calculation of Improper Medicare Payment Rates for 2009

As part of the Obama Administration's goal of reducing waste, fraud and abuse in Medicare, the Department of Health and Human Services and CMS significantly revised and improved its calculations of Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) error rates in 2009, reflecting a more complete accounting of Medicare's improper payments than in past years. These improvements will provide CMS with more complete information about errors so that the Agency can better target improper payments.
