Hussar Quoted on New OMIG Compliance Program Requirements

March 22, 2023 | Compliance Investigations & White Collar | Health Services

Bob Hussar was interviewed by the Report on Medicare Compliance for its article, “New NYS Compliance-Program Requirements May Be Useful Everywhere as a ‘Fresh Look.'”

The article covers the new compliance-program requirements that will take effect on March 28 of this year. In order for healthcare providers to be paid by Medicare, they must have an effective compliance program in place.

“It’s a game-changer,” Bob notes. “It’s probably the most significant change to compliance programs since they originally came out in the late 1990s.” The biggest change is that “having an effective compliance program in New York is a condition of payment, so there’s no question OMIG has the ability to claw back payments” from providers in addition to imposing fines and penalties for failure to implement the state’s compliance-program requirements, Bob said.
