From the OIG News Release:

The newest step in OIG’s Provider Compliance Training initiative is free videos and audio podcasts – averaging about four minutes each – which cover major health care fraud and abuse laws, the basics of health care compliance programs, and what to do when a compliance issue arises.

The first video and audio podcast discusses OIG exclusion authorities, which are the legal means by which OIG may bar certain individuals and entities from participating as providers in all Federal health care programs, including Medicare and Medicaid. Future presentations will cover the Federal Anti-kickback statute, the False Claims Act, the Physician Self-Referral Law, OIG guidance and resources, compliance program basics, tips for implementing an effective compliance program, the importance of documentation, OIG’s Self-Disclosure Protocol, reporting fraud to OIG, and using OIG’s exclusions database.

OIG will tweet about the Provider Compliance Training videos and audio podcasts as they are released using the hashtag #OIGcompliance, which Twitter users are encouraged to include when tweeting about the presentations.

OIG hosted free, in-depth compliance sessions-sponsored by the Health Care Fraud Prevention and Enforcement Action Team (HEAT)-in spring 2011 in six cities across the country. In addition to the 700 in-person attendees, OIG also reached a national audience of thousands of Webcast participants via the Internet. The Provider Compliance Training Initiative won a 2011 Excellence Award from the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency, which represents the Federal Inspector General community.
