On January 17, 2018 the Office of Inspector General (OIG) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in conjunction with the Administration for Community Living (ACL) and the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) at HHS issued a report that outlined their federal investigation into issues with critical incident reporting in group home settings for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). OIG is the official government body responsible for ensuring that federal funding, like Medicaid funding, is being used efficiently and appropriately. The report cites model reporting mechanisms for states as well as specific recommendations for the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) to implement in order to ensure that critical incident reporting is compliant with federal law and obligations.
In this webinar we will lay out who is conducting this report, why it is being conducted, and the summary of the investigation findings. We will also share how the states and national disability organizations have responded to this OIG report. OIG was clear in their report that they are extending their investigations throughout the country. The second half of the webinar will include a discussion by providers who worked with OIG on this specific investigation – providing you with tools and tips you need if and when OIG comes to your state.
