OIG Video on Corporate Integrity Agreements

Norris McLaughlin, Attorneys at Law, Health Care and Life Sciences Blog, The Legal Diagnosis

The Office of Inspector General (OIG) recently posted a video entitled “Eye on Oversight Video: Corporate Integrity Agreements” that describes how providers accused of false claims or other health care fraud may settle their cases by entering into a Corporate Integrity Agreement (CIA) with the OIG.  The CIA typically includes requirements for (1) a compliance officer and compliance committee; (2) written compliance policies; (3) an employee compliance training plan; (4) a risk assessment and internal review process; (5) a disclosure or hot line program for employees to report concerns; (6) a screening process for prospective employees; and (7) retention of an independent review organization to conduct annual compliance reviews that are submitted to the OIG.

The video is below.  If you have any questions concerning the CIA process, please contact me at sjarvaweiss@nmmlaw.com.
