The Office of Inspector General (“OIG”) has posted its Health Care Fraud Prevention and Enforcement Action Team (“HEAT”) compliance training resources on its website wherein it provides videos and audio podcasts regarding a number of topics, including:
- An overview of the OIG
- Overviews of the healthcare fraud and abuse laws;
- Exclusion from Medicare;
