HHS Compliance with the Payment Integrity Information Act of 2019

The Payment Integrity Information Act of 2019 (PIIA) requires the head of each Federal agency with programs or activities that may be susceptible to significant improper payments to report certain information to Congress. For any program or activity with estimated improper payments exceeding $10 million and 1.5 percent, or $100 million regardless of the improper payment rate, HHS must report to Congress improper payment estimates, corrective action plans, and reduction targets. Pursuant to PIAA and OMB Circular A-123, Appendix C, Requirements for Payment Integrity Improvement, OIG will review HHS compliance with PIAA as well as how HHS assesses the programs it reports and the accuracy and completeness of the reporting in HHS's Agency Financial Report. We will make recommendations as needed. We will use the independent external auditor contracted to audit the annual CMS and HHS Financial Statement Audits to perform this work.
