The OIG has issued its latest Semiannual Report to Congress, covering the period of October 1, 2012 to March 31, 2013. For the first half of FY 2013, the OIG reported expected recoveries of about $3.8 billion, consisting of more than $521 million in audit receivables and about $3.28 billion in investigative receivables (which includes $642.3 million in non-HHS investigative receivables, such as states’ shares of Medicaid restitution). The OIG excluded 1,661 individuals and entities from participation in federal health care programs; 484 criminal actions for crimes against HHS programs; and 240 civil actions (including false claims and unjust-enrichment lawsuits filed in federal district court, civil monetary penalty settlements, and administrative recoveries related to provider self-disclosure matters). The report also summarizes significant investigation and audit activities for the period.
