The Office of Inspector General (OIG) has several self-disclosure processes that can be used to report potential fraud in Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) programs. Choose the one that applies to you from the following descriptions to learn more.
Self-disclosures should not be reported to the OIG Hotline.
Health care providers, suppliers, or other individuals or entities subject to Civil Monetary Penalties can use the Provider Self-Disclosure Protocol, which was created in 1998, to voluntarily disclose self-discovered evidence of potential fraud. Self-disclosure gives providers the opportunity to avoid the costs and disruptions associated with a Government-directed investigation and civil or administrative litigation. Visit the Provider Self-Disclosure Protocol webpage for more information.
HHS Contractors and Self-Disclosures
Contractors are individuals, businesses, or other legal entities that are awarded Government contracts, or subcontracts, to provide services to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). OIG's contractor self-disclosure program enables contractors to self-disclose potential violations of the False Claims Act and various Federal criminal laws involving fraud, conflict of interest, bribery or gratuity. This self-disclosure process is available only to those with a Federal Acquisition Regulation-based contract. Visit the Contractor Self-Disclosure webpage for more information.
