Attention OPWDD Providers: OMIG Releases Compliance Guidance for Corporate Compliance Programs
The New York State Office of the Medicaid Inspector General (OMIG) has released Compliance Guidance for use by providers regulated by the New York State Office of Persons for Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD).
The routine identification of compliance risk areas, relating to the particular type of services being offered by Medicaid providers, is required for certain providers in accordance with the New York State Social Services Law Section 363-d and implementing regulations at 18 NYCRR Part 521. The purpose of the OMIG’s Compliance Guidance is to give examples of compliance risk areas that may be of particular concern to those providing Day Habilitation, Day Treatment, Residential Habilitation, and Medicaid Service Coordination services. Many of these are taken from OMIG Audit Protocols for Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) programs and services.

Ross, who served as Acting New York State Medicaid Inspector General under governors Pataki and Spitzer, as well as General Counsel, Deputy Medicaid Inspector General, and Director of Audits and Investigations for the Office of the Medicaid Inspector General (OMIG).
