Reduce the Risk, Cost & Aggravation of an OIG Audit

The Office of Inspector General (OIG) is actively auditing Medicare Advantage plans. These audits may have significant implications for plans, potentially resulting in substantial repayments, reputational damage, and non-compliance penalties.

The OIG is reviewing data submitted by health plans and selecting plans with a high likelihood of incorrect codes based on the OIG’s criteria. So far, plans selected for audit have a less than 10% rate of successfully defending reviewed cases.
