Self Disclosure Protocols Revised By OIG

Self Disclosure Protocols Revised By OIG

oig self disclosureThe Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General released revised Provider Self-Disclosure Protocol (SDP). The new protocols were released on April 16, 2013. We have not reviewed the protocols in detail at this point and will likely have further information once we review them in depth and compare to previous protocols.  It appears from an initial reading that there were changes in the scope of coverage when there is a violation of the Stark Law. There is also a minimum settlement amount.  More detailed guidelines governing what is applcable in initial submissions are also included.

Stay tuned for more information on the new self-disclosure protocols that were released by the OIG last week.
