OIG 2015 Work Plan Released

The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) has just released its 2015 Work Plan and it looks a lot like its 2014 plan. The OIG will still be focused on inappropriate Part A and Part B billing in Nursing Facilities; general inpatient care billing for Hospice; compliance with PPS requirements in home health, with special scrutiny on newly enrolled home health agencies as well as review of employment of individuals with criminal convictions in the home care setting. The OIG will also still be looking at inappropriate Part B billing for Chiropractor services; place of service coding errors for Physician services; and the high use of outpatient Physical Therapy services.
