As most of us already know, the OIG’s mission is to provide objective oversight to promote the efficiency, effectiveness, and integrity of HHS programs, as well as the health and welfare of the people they serve. More specifically, their goals consist of:
Preventing, detecting, and deterring fraud, waste, and abuse
Fostering sound financial stewardship and reduction of improper payments
Holding wrongdoers accountable and recover misspent public funds
One of the ways they are able to achieve those goals is through Hospital Compliance Reviews. And over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, the OIG has continued their mission of accomplishing their goals in a business-as-usual approach.
The OIG has regularly performed these types of audits of various provider types in the healthcare system, and the past 12 months has been no exception.
But, over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, we know how difficult it has been to stay up-to-date with all of the regulations, updates, news of audits, waivers, and reports. Which is around here we like to dive into the OIG’s goings-on, dissent them and then share our thoughts with you. Which is why we’ll be hosting a new webinar, “What the OIG Exposed During Their Recent Compliance Reviews,” where I’ll discuss the OIG’s most recent Hospital Compliance Reviews, and show you:
How the Services Included in the Audit were Chosen by the OIG
What Common Errors and Issues of Non-compliance They Identified
How You Can Implement Safeguards and Ensure You Remain Compliant
And did I mention that just for joining us on the hour-long presentation, you’ll be eligible to receive 1.2 Compliance Certification Board-approved credit?
