HHS/OIG RIN: 0936-AA04 Publication ID: Spring 2014 
Title: Medicare and State Health Care Programs: Fraud and Abuse; Revisions to the Office of the Inspector General's Civil Monetary Penalty Rules 
Abstract: This rule makes changes to the Civil Monetary Penalties Law (CMPL) regulations at 42 CFR 1003 to implement authorities under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and other statutes. ACA provides for CMPs, assessments, and exclusion for: ?Failure to grant access timely access to OIG; ?Ordering or prescribing while excluded; ?Making false statements, omissions, or misrepresentations in an enrollment application; ?Failure to return an overpayment; and ?Making or using a false record or statement that is material to a false or fraudulent claim. These statutory changes are reflected in the proposed regulations. We also propose a reorganization of 42 CFR 1003 to make the regulations more accessible to the public, and to add clarity to the regulatory scheme. We propose an alternate methodology for calculating penalties and assessments for employing excluded individuals in positions in which the individuals do not directly bill the Federal health care programs for furnishing items or services. We also clarify the liability guidelines under OIG authorities, including the CMPL, the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act; section 1140 of the Social Security Act for conduct involving electronic mail, Internet, and telemarketing solicitations; and section 1927 of the Social Security Act for late or incomplete reporting of drug-pricing information.
