Hunter New England Health believes procedures for Medicare billing in the region’s hospitals are being followed to the letter.
It’s been revealed some doctors are abusing the Medicare system by claiming twice for their scheduled fees.
Incorrect Medicare billing was discovered at two of the nation’s hospitals 2 years ago, but a further investigation has revealed the practice is more commonplace than first thought.
Hunter New England Health says it will comply with an audit being carried out by The Department Of Human Services.
