OIG Releases Health Care Provider Compliance Videos and Audio Podcasts

The Office of Inspector General (OIG) of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) today released the first of 11 short video and audio presentations for health care providers on top health care compliance topics.

“We know that the overwhelming majority of health care providers are working hard to comply with Federal laws and regulations,” said Daniel R. Levinson, HHS Inspector General. “These videos are designed to guide them in further enhancing their compliance efforts.”

The first video and audio podcast discusses OIG exclusion authorities, which are the legal means by which OIG may bar certain individuals and entities from participating as providers in Federal health care programs, including Medicare and Medicaid. This presentation also includes a discussion of the impact of exclusion on providers and the types of activities and actions that may lead to exclusion.

Subsequent videos and audio podcasts will be released at the beginning of each week over a 3-month period (with no release the week of December 26).
