U.S. Court of Appeals Unanimously Upholds DOL Home Care Rul

U.S. Court of Appeals Unanimously Upholds DOL Home Care Rule

 

Thank you for your engagement with the Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division regarding the Home Care Final Rule.On Friday, August 21, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia issued a unanimous decision upholding the Home Care Final Rule. DOL issued the statement below, which is available on our website at http://www.dol.gov/whd/homecare/litigation.htm

This site will be updated with any changes related to litigation, so please check back for updates.

Today’s decision from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia is vital to nearly two million home care workers, who will now qualify for minimum wage and overtime protections. The decision confirms this rule is legally sound. And just as important, the rule is the right thing to do — both for employees, whose demanding work merits these fundamental wage guarantees, and for recipients of services, who deserve a stable and professional workforce allowing them to remain in their homes and communities.

The DOL has led an unprecedented implementation program to help employers prepare for compliance, including offering an extensive and individualized technical assistance program, providing a 15-month period before the effective date to aid compliance, and adopting a time-limited non-enforcement policy. DOL has repeatedly encouraged states and other employers to take the necessary steps toward implementation. The Department continues to stand ready to provide technical assistance to states and other entities as they implement the Final Rule.

Florida Medicaid Provider Self Audit Resources – Now Available

FLORIDA MEDICAID
A Division of the Agency for Health Care Administration

Florida Medicaid Health Care Alert
July 2015

Provider Self Audit Resources are Now Available on the Agency’s Website

Medicaid providers are encouraged to voluntarily conduct self-audits and remedy any issues of non-compliance that are identified, including either voiding/adjusting improper claims or submitting to the Agency’s Bureau of Medicaid Program Integrity (MPI), the self-audit findings and repayment of the improper claims.

MPI recommended that providers review claims with dates of service as old as five years to the present.  MPI also encourages providers to engage in routine self-audits of more current claims (most recent twelve months).  This allows providers to have the opportunity to remedy the claims before an Agency-initiated audit.  When the Agency conducts an audit, it is entitled to recover the costs of the audit and is required to assess sanctions for the non-compliance.  A provider who conducts a self-audit, submits the results, and remits payment, may avoid sanctions for their voluntary disclosure and repayment of overpayments so long as the Agency determines that the disclosure is valid and so long as it is not discovered to be an attempt to alleviate liability for fraudulent practices.

Information about conducting self-audits is available on the Agency’s website, on the MPI landing page.  Please see the below screen-shot which demonstrates how to navigate from the Agency’s home page to the MPI landing page.

Medicaid providers are encouraged to voluntarily conduct self-audits and remedy any issues of non-compliance that are identified, including either voiding/adjusting improper claims or submitting to the Agency’s Bureau of Medicaid Program Integrity (MPI), the self-audit findings and repayment of the improper claims.

Questions regarding conducting a self-audit may be directed to Pam Fante via email at Pam.Fante@ahca.myflorida.com and please include the question in the email.
