Industry Update: What the OIG’s New General Compliance Program Guidance Means for Health Centers
Earlier this month the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) released new General Compliance Program Guidance (“GCPG”), its first guidance to the health care field on compliance programs in over 15 years. The OIG is taking a new approach to providing such guidance - starting with the GCPG which will be followed by a series of industry-specific compliance program guidance (“ICPG”) to be issued in 2024. The GCPG retains the seven elements of a compliance program and adds important details on the OIG’s expectations for each element. In this Industry Update, we’ll provide an overview of the GCPG and highlight where the OIG provides new details, expectations and insights for developing an effective compliance program. Specifically, we’ll discuss:
- The evolving role of the compliance officer and expectations for the Compliance Committee;
- The emphasis on conducting and implementing a compliance risk assessment; and
- The use of incentives to encourage participation in the compliance program.
We’ll also reserve time to answer questions submitted prior to the webinar. To have your question considered, please submit your question by Monday, November 27th, by email to Dianne K. Pledgie at email@example.com.
The on-demand version of this webinar will be available for purchase one week after the conclusion of the live webinar.
