On March 11, 2010, the Office of Inspector General (OIG) of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) published its 2010 Compendium of Unimplemented Office of Inspector General Recommendations,” which outlines previous OIG recommendations designed to achieve savings and increase the effectiveness of HHS programs. The OIG highlights priority recommendations in a number of areas, including (among others): hospital bad debt payments; processing of remedies associated with noncompliant nursing homes; hospice claims for nursing facility beneficiaries; medical equipment supplier compliance with Medicare enrollment standards; Medicare payments for oxygen and inhalation drugs; Medicare payments to Medicare Advantage (MA) organizations; Medicare Part D drug plan payments and program integrity safeguards; Medicaid prescription drug reimbursement and rebate calculations; and oversight of clinical investigator and NIH grantee conflicts of interest.
