Recent cases of Medicare fraud resulting in lengthy prison sentences for doctors and hospital administrators as well as significant financial fines and penalties have caught the attention of many in the industry. Are you prepared?
The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) within the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is charged with ensuring that HHS programs and operations are conducted in accordance with the law and administrative rules. The OIG has the power to audit and bring suit against hospitals and other healthcare providers.
The OIG publishes their workplan on a yearly basis to announce the issues of particular interest to them. As a coder, you should know what the OIG is looking for and work with your management team to ensure your facility or office is in compliance.
