The Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Inspector General (OIG) published a solicitation of new safe harbors and Special Fraud Alerts on Dec. 12. The OIG notes that in accordance with public law, it continually studies safe harbor and special fraud alert proposals submitted in response to the annual solicitations.
Some of the solicitations have been addressed in the safe harbor rulemakings published on Nov. 19, 1999, or are already under development, notes the OIG. The OIG last published a Federal Register solicitation notice for developing new safe harbors and Special Fraud Alerts on Dec. 10, 1999. The OIG requests a detailed explanation of justifications or empirical data supporting the suggestion.
