COVID-19: K&L Gates Triage: OIG Updates Work Plan to Include Audits of COVID-19 Related Reimbursement and CARES Act Funding

Date: 18 September 2020

In this week’s episode, Matt Hubbell and Stephen Bittinger discuss the addition of two new items to the Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General (OIG) work plan: auditing of COVID-19 related reimbursement during the public health emergency, and auditing of CARES Act provider relief funds. The presenters discuss the ways in which OIG is likely to scrutinize the use of CARES Act and other funding received by health care providers during the COVID-19 public health emergency, and how providers should prepare for OIG inquiries.
