The Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General has launched a new initiative designed to draw attention to those healthcare providers it considers to be high risk for committing healthcare fraud after having been charged under the False Claims Act. The OIG posted this Fraud Risk Indicator on its website after Gregory Demske, the OIG's chief counsel announced the initiative during the American Health Lawyers Association's Fraud and Compliance Forum late last month. Soon providers will be listed with their risk ranking. The OIG evaluates healthcare fraud cases on a continuum with Highest Risk being those who have been excluded from participating in federal healthcare programs (i.e. Medicare and Medicaid) to Lowest Risk, being those who self-disclosed potential fraud and abuse to the OIG.
