The New York State Office of the Medicaid Inspector General (“OMIG”) recently posted on its website a Compliance Program Self-Assessment Form that OMIG developed as a resource for providers to help them assess their compliance programs’ effectiveness under the new compliance regulations adopted on December 28, 2023. This form is different from the Compliance Program Review Module that OMIG published on March 8, 2023.
You will see similarities between the Compliance Program Review Module (which OMIG will use when doing its audits) and the Compliance Program Self-Assessment Form. OMIG does provide some basic direction to providers if their self-assessment determines that a requirement is not being met.
When accessing the Compliance Program Self-Assessment form in a Microsoft Word document, allow “editing” to enter information in the form.
OMIG clearly indicates that the Self-Assessment Form SHOULD NOT be submitted to OMIG.
