Abstract

On February 11, 1998, the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (OIG) released guidelines to assist hospitals and their agents and subproviders to comply with Medicare and Medicaid regulations. While adopting and implementing a compliance program is voluntary, the OIG believes that such a program prevents fraud, abuse, and waste while simultaneously furthering providers' fundamental mission--to provide quality care.
