The Affordable Care Act requires Medicaid providers to "self-disclose" - to report and return any dollars that the provider should not have received. In order to aid providers in this process, on August 6th, 2014 the Office of the Medicaid Inspector General (OMIG) hosted a webinar that shows Medicaid providers in New York how to self disclose. Self disclosure efforts by OMIG and providers yielded over $20 million in returned payments during OMIG's last reporting year. OMIG suggests that every Medicaid provider view Webinar #21 - Self Disclosure to understand how the process works, and what they can do as a provider to comply with this important requirement.
OMIG published Compliance Guidance 2014 - 04 Revision # 1. This compliance guidance gives information relevant to inpatient chemical dependency rehabilitation and outpatient chemical dependency services providers. This document is part of a series of guidance documents that can be seen here.
