Learn More About Medicaid Bonds
Each surety insurance contract provides a financial guarantee that a business will fulfill an obligation according to contractual terms. When it comes to this type of surety bond, the purpose is to ensure businesses bill Medicaid appropriately. As with other bond types, three parties are involved with the contract.
- The obligee is the government agency that requires the bond.
- The principal is the business that buys the bond to guarantee work performance.
- The surety is the insurance underwriter that issues the bond.
Pursuant to the Balanced Budget Act of 1997, the Secretary of the United States Department of Health and Human Services requires businesses that bill Medicaid to provide a home health agency Medicaid bond. This surety bond type can be used to reimburse an obligee for all or part of the cost of home health services furnished by a principal under the Medicaid program. Under this bond, the principal and surety are jointly liable for uncollected Medicaid overpayments for home health services. The bond amount required for federal Medicaid Bonds is not defined on the form.
Pursuant to Florida Statute §409.907(7), the Florida Agency for Healthcare Administration requires Medicaid providers to file a $50,000 Florida surety bond. The bond requires principals to honestly and faithfully apply funds received.
