Liles Parker Article on Medicare Overpayment Individual Liability Published in American University Law Journal

The Risks of Medicare Overpayment Individual Liability Must be Properly Assessed.

Will the government seek to “pierce the corporate veil”?

(October 16, 2013):  A recent article by Liles Parker attorney David P. Parker in the Health Law & Policy Brief,  a law journal publication of American University’s Washington School of Law, examines an issue that is becoming more important to health care providers each day.  The article, titled:  “Individual Liability for Medicare Overpayment Claims” carefully examines whether an owner of a health care practice, home health agency or DME company, can be held to be personally liable for alleged overpayments owed by the health care entity.

The article examines several of the primary issues which typically arise when a health care entity seeks bankruptcy relief while allegedly owing Medicare a significant overpayment. As the article discusses, it is becoming more common for the government to attempt and “pierce the corporate veil,” in an effort to collect the overpayment debt from one or more of the owners of the bankrupt company. As the article reflects, this area of the law is highly complex and it can be quite difficult to project how hard the government will attempt to collect seek an outstanding overpayment.  A copy of Mr. Parker’s analysis can be found on the Law School’s website.
