PROGRAM NOTE: The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG) wants you to know what issues they’re looking at. The bad news: if during an investigation, they ask if you saw the plan and you say “yes,” that signals that you knew better. Say “no,” and they’ll likely say you acted recklessly. The Bottom line: you need to know what’s on their mind. And now you will, thanks to the upcoming OIG Work Plan Update webcast by healthcare attorney David Glaser coming your way on Thursday, Nov. 16 at 1:30 p.m. ET. Register now.
