Whistleblower Protection

Whistleblower disclosures by employees of HHS and its contractors and grantees can save lives as well as billions of taxpayer dollars. Federal laws strongly encourage disclosures of wrongdoing.


HHS OIG is the largest inspector general's office in the Federal Government, with approximately 1,600 dedicated to combating fraud, waste and abuse and to improving the efficiency of HHS programs. A majority of OIG's resources goes toward the government oversight of Medicare and Medicaid—programs that represent a significantNewsletter graphic part of the Federal budget and that affect this country's most vulnerable citizens. OIG's oversight extends to programs under other HHS institutions, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Institutes of Health, and the Food and Drug Administration.
