OIG Provides Physician Education Materials for Avoiding Fraud and Abuse

The Office of Inspector General (OIG) for the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services has created the educational materials listed below to assist in teaching physicians about the Federal laws designed to protect the Medicare and Medicaid programs and program beneficiaries from fraud, waste, and abuse.

These materials summarize the five main Federal fraud and abuse laws (the False Claims Act, the Anti-Kickback Statute, the Stark Law, the Exclusion Statute, and the Civil Monetary Penalties Law) and provide tips on how physicians should comply with these laws in their relationships with payers (e.g., the Medicare and Medicaid programs), vendors (e.g., drug, biologic, and medical device companies), and fellow providers (e.g., hospitals, nursing homes, and physician colleagues).

OIG hopes you find these free educational materials helpful and appreciates your willingness to educate physicians about fraud, waste, and abuse.
