In late December 2022, the New York State Office of the Medicaid Inspector General (OMIG) adopted a set of new regulations that formalized OMIG’s Self-Disclosure Program for Medicaid overpayments, among other things. The regulations are likely to impact nearly every provider and supplier who receives payments from the New York Medicaid program, whether directly or indirectly.

Harris Beach Partner Peter M. Hoffman will present on “The New World of Self-Disclosures” at the Health Care Compliance Association’s New York Regional Healthcare Compliance Conference on June 23. The conference is at the Fordham University School of Law in New York City.

Peter’s presentation will cover the new rules in detail, including the following topics:

  • Knowing when you must report, return and explain overpayments from the Medicaid program
  • Recognizing the benefits of timely submitting self-disclosures and the consequences for failing to do so
  • Understanding OMIG’s new Self-Disclosure Program framework and expectations
  • Learning how to make self-disclosures to OMIG or to Medicaid Managed Care Organizations
