What better way to stay on top of your compliance program than to audit those things that are in the crosshairs of the OIG!

Included in the Affordable Care Act sections 6102 and 6104 are the requirements for implementing Compliance Programs. The law describes various elements of a program including the need to have an auditing and monitoring process in place.

The Work Plan is a summary of the reviews that the OIG plans to perform in fiscal year 2016. By using their plan as one of your resources to develop your own auditing plans, you ensure that you are focusing on current problem areas and trends.

Please join us for a one hour webinar as we provide an overview of the OIG and their 2016 Work Plan including: 1) A description of the OIG including their responsibilities and accomplishments; 2) Explain what the Work Plan is and how it is developed and formatted. 3) Discuss the OIG Focus Areas and New Projects; 4) illustrate how the elements of the Work Plan can be incorporated into your own auditing/monitoring plan.
