Read Frequently Asked Questions

The course will instruct attendees on the revised self-disclosure protocol (SDP), the process and procedures for self-reporting and the risks of not self-reporting.

Why Should You Attend:

In April of 2013, the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) of the United States Department of Health and Human Services issued new procedures called the SDP for facilities to self-report various violations. Knowledge of these procedures supports your team’s compliance goals. If there is a need for self-reporting, it indicates that your team’s compliance program is working.

The release of the revised SDP offers new incentives for facilities to self-report, but also grants greater enforcement sanctions to the Office of the Inspector General (OIG). The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) believes that there are both legal and ethical standards that require entities to use a self-report system.

This webinar will acquaint attendees with:

  • The framework of the revised SDP
  • The process and procedures for self-reporting
  • The advantages and disadvantages of using the SDP illustrated with examples
  • The mechanics of filing an SDP
  • The risks of not self-reporting
  • The use of an SDP to enhance your compliance program

The program will also review challenges faced by the OIG in dealing with whistleblowers and how this may impact self-disclosure.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identification of when to self-report
  • How to correctly self-report if needed

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Is disclosure required? HHS says that often there is a legal duty or ethical duty to report violations.
  • The better question: Is there an advantage to self-reported disclosure?

  • Can reduce monetary penalties
  • Provides flexibility in the return of any overcharges
  • Speeds up case resolution and management
