In the recently released Federal Register, The Office of Inspector General (OIG) informed the public that that it intends to update the Provider Self-Disclosure Protocol (the Protocol) and is soliciting input. The Protocol, which was first introduced in 1998, is the process that health care providers can take in order to disclose potential fraud involving the Federal health care programs. The Protocol includes guidance on how to investigate this conduct, quantify damages, and report the conduct to the OIG. The OIG is soliciting any comments, recommendations, and other suggestions in order to provide guidance to the health care industry and to revise the current Protocol.
