Progressive Insurance settles MSP False Claims Act action for $2 million dollars - another reminder to proactively manage your Medicare Compliance exposure
Tuesday, November 28, 2017
If you remember, back on October 20, 2017, I blogged about MAPs
asserting their rights against RREs. Here, a private citizen,
the whistleblower, asserted that Progressive was not checking
Medicare and Medicaid status of its members prior to enrolling them
in their health first automobile insurance policies. The U.S.
Attorney's office prosecuted the action on behalf of the
whistleblower and the litigation has now settled.
RREs need to be able to demonstrate that proactive steps are being
taken to properly identify and address their Medicare Compliance
exposures. If you need assistance in developing and/or
implementing best practices to protect against these exposures,
please contact Attorney Amy E. Goyette.
