The Work Plans issued annually by the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Inspector General (OIG) give providers insight into what the OIG believes are areas prone to fraud, waste and abuse. This is the second of two articles highlighting provisions in the 2013 OIG Work Plan, released by the OIG on October 2, 2012, that providers should consider addressing in their compliance plans. The first article summarized Work Plan provisions that relate to hospital and physician providers.

The summary of these provisions are divided into "new" and "continuing" initiatives based on whether the issue was previously addressed in last year's Work Plan.
