About the Training
OIG's provider compliance training initiative is an outgrowth of the HHS/DOJ Health Care Fraud Prevention and Enforcement Action Team's ("HEAT") efforts. In Spring 2011, OIG and its government partners provided in-person trainings in Houston, Tampa, Kansas City, Baton Rouge, Denver, and Washington, D.C. The trainings focused on the realities of Medicare and Medicaid fraud and the importance of implementing an effective compliance program. View the webcast and hear our three-pronged message about provider compliance.
- Get the Facts. Understand the law and the consequences of violating it.
- Make a Plan. Cultivate a culture of compliance within your health care organization.
