New York State Office of the Medicaid Inspector General Posts Compliance Program Assessment Results
As part of its ongoing efforts to provide information and guidance to the state’s Medicaid provider community, OMIG posted on its website Compliance Program Assessment Results January 2015 through June 30, 2017 (Results). The Results detail statistics that identify the percentage of times OMIG observed, in the course of compliance program reviews, required providers to be insufficient in meeting any of the requirements under each of the eight elements of a mandatory compliance program.
The Results can serve as a valuable tool for required providers to assist their efforts in targeting areas where additional focus can be placed when doing self-assessments of their compliance program, operating their compliance programs, as well as developing compliance work plans and risk assessments. Other resources on OMIG’s website that can help a required provider complete its self-assessment of its compliance program are the Compliance Program Self-Assessment form and the Compliance Program Review Guidance.
The Results will be updated and posted annually on OMIG’s website.
