(Recorded Webinar) Industry Update: What the OIG’s New General Compliance Program Guidance Means for Health Centers
Earlier this month the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) released new General Compliance Program Guidance (“GCPG”), its first guidance to the health care field on compliance programs in over 15 years. The OIG is taking a new approach to providing such guidance - starting with the GCPG which will be followed by a series of industry-specific compliance program guidance (“ICPG”) to be issued in 2024. The GCPG retains the seven elements of a compliance program and adds important details on the OIG’s expectations for each element. In this Industry Update, we’ll provide an overview of the GCPG and highlight where the OIG provides new details, expectations and insights for developing an effective compliance program. Specifically, we’ll discuss:
- The evolving role of the compliance officer and expectations for the Compliance Committee;
- The emphasis on conducting and implementing a compliance risk assessment; and
- The use of incentives to encourage participation in the compliance program.
- Compliance Officers/Risk Managers
- C-Suite: CEOs, COOs, CHRO
- In-House Legal Counsel
- Board members
After this webinar, you will be able to:
- Identify the seven elements of a compliance program;
- Understand the flexibilities for small entities as they implement a compliance program; and
- Prioritize revisions to your compliance program to align with the GCPG.

If you need to document attendance for someone other than the account holder, we provide blank Certificates of Attendance for a supervisor to sign and certify that a different individual viewed the course.
Group Attendance: Due to the online nature of webinars, we cannot verify participation by more than one person. For groups, we provide an attendance record form and blank Certificates of Attendance to record attendance at a group viewing session and document each individual's participation. We recommend that a supervisor or colleague sign the certificate to certify attendance.
