Medicare Compliance Review of Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento

However, the Hospital did not fully comply with Medicare billing requirements for the remaining 117 claims, resulting in overpayments of approximately $1 million. These overpayments occurred primarily because the Hospital did not have adequate controls to prevent the incorrect billing of Medicare claims within the selected risk areas that contained errors.
