Monitor Mondays

Nov 28 2022 • 29 mins

We’ve all watched in awe as the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG) began investigating the Medicare Advantage plans. Many were thinking, “it’s about time the payers get some of the heat providers feel.” But there’s something even better, according to most. That’s when the OIG investigates the government.

During the next live edition of Monitor Mondays, physician-attorney Dr. John K. Hall reviews an OIG audit of Medicare contractors and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). He’ll also explain what this means for providers.
