The OIG has issued a report on its findings that Medicare in some cases continued to make payments to physicians who have delinquent Medicare debts that have been referred to Treasury for collection. For instance, CMS paid a total of $10.7 million to 23 individual physicians who collectively owed CMS a total of $8.84 million. The OIG recommended that CMS take a series of steps to ensure that it does not pay individual physicians with delinquent debts after referring their Medicare debts to Treasury for collection; CMS concurred.
