BLOOMBERG BNA WEBINAR EVENT: The OIG’s Updated Self-Disclosure Protocol
Wednesday, July 10, 2013
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET
On April 17, 2013, the Office of Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services (OIG) released an updated self-disclosure protocol (SDP) that significantly overhauls the process for providers and others to voluntarily disclose and resolve instances of potential fraud involving federal health care programs such as Medicare and Medicaid. The revised SDP adds substantial new guidance on assembling the content included in disclosures and provides greater transparency into the OIG’s process for resolution of disclosed matters. Notably, the SDP for the first time publicly acknowledges how the OIG approaches damages calculations in particular situations and sets minimum settlement amounts for resolving particular disclosed matters.
This program will help participants understand the changes to the SDP process and potential resolutions available for resolving particular disclosed matters. Additionally, attendees will learn to identify issues that those considering making a self disclosure, or those advising clients in whether and when to avail themselves of the SDP, should consider before submitting the self-disclosure to the OIG.
- Understand the self-disclosure process.
