Free training on fraud, abuse laws posted online

January 02, 2012

Washington—The Office of Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced it would provide 11 new and free videos and podcasts that can help health care providers learn about compliance with health care fraud and abuse laws.

The videos average about four minutes each and cover major health care fraud and abuse laws, the basics of health care compliance programs and what to do when a compliance issue arises.

The presentations are posted on the OIG website (http://oig.hhs.gov/newsroom/video/2011/heat_modules.asp) at the start of each week and will continue over the next three months, with no release the week of Dec. 26.

The materials are from OIG’s award-winning Health Care Fraud Prevention and Enforcement Action Team Provider Compliance Training initiative.
