OIG Issues Special Advisory Bulletin On Practices Of Consultants


Recently, the Department of Health and Human Services (“DHH”) Office of Inspector General (“OIG”) issued a Special Advisory Bulletin (“Bulletin”) alerting providers, suppliers, and practitioners involved in the health care industry to certain marketing and other practices used by consultants. According to the Bulletin, while certain business practices may not actually rise to the level of fraud and may not be illegal, such practices increase the risk of abuse of the Medicare and Medicaid programs. By publishing the Bulletin the OIG is encouraging providers, suppliers and practitioners to recognize and protect themselves and the Medicare and Medicaid programs against such questionable practices.
