OIG Updates F/A Work Plan Monthly
The Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (OIG) announced in June that it would update the work plan monthly, to enhance transparency.
OIG also will review Medicaid health home programs for compliance with federal and state requirements. OIG noted in the update that as of May 2017, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) approved Medicaid state plan amendments for 21 states and the District of Columbia for health home programs.
In addition, OIG will look at Medicare Part D sponsors’ reporting of direct and indirect remuneration (DIR) to determine whether Part D sponsors complied with Medicare DIR reporting requirements.
