OIG posts review of acute care inpatient same-day readmissions at St. Mary's Hospital (VA)

On January 30, the Office of inspector General (OIG) posted a report that states St. Mary's Hospital, located in Richmond, Virginia, failed to bill same-day readmissions in accordance with federal requirements for 17 of the 53 same-day readmissions the OIG reviewed. St. Mary's Hospital incorrectly billed the second admission as a separate inpatient stay instead of a continuous stay based on the first admission, resulting in $89,000 in overpayments.
