Direct or indirect past affiliation with an individual the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) deems to be a bad actor could trigger revocation from Medicare.

The new rulemaking this so, 52 CFR, Section 424.519, Disclosures of Affiliations, authorizes CMS to deny or revoke enrollment based on disclosures of certain affiliations the agency determines to pose an undue risk of fraud, waste, or abuse.

Reporting our lead story during this edition of Monitor Mondays is healthcare attorney Andrew Wachler, a managing partner at Wachler and Associates. Mr. Wachler also discusses what constitutes an “affiliated entity” and what events must be disclosed.
