The 2017 OIG Work Plan will be your regulatory roadmap alerting you to the areas the OIG will be detecting and pursuing regarding waste, fraud, and abuse. And no one is more qualified to lead you through this roadmap than prominent healthcare attorney Andrew Wachler. The OIG is tough on waste, fraud and abuse. In fact, in testimony given before a House congressional committee in September, the OIG told committee members that OIG investigations resulted in more than $10.9 billion — money ordered or agreed to be paid to government programs. Moreover, the OIG investigations led to 2,856 criminal actions, 1,447 civil actions, and 11,343 program exclusions.
There is no reason to believe that the OIG will let up anytime soon in its commitment to protect the integrity of Medicare and Medicaid.
And that’s why you’ll want to have an attorney — such as the famed Andrew Wachler — walk you through the new issues the OIG is pursuing in 2017.
