OIG Report: CMS Paid Practitioners for Telehealth Services That Did Not Meet Medicare Requirements
OIG report found improper payments for telehealth services to the tune of $13.8 million.

The reason behind the review was to decide if CMS had paid practitioners for telehealth services that had or had not met the requirements that Medicare set forth. This white paper reviews the findings of that report and what has happened with those findings.
