OIG recovers $86 million in second quarter

The OIG published its second quarterly report for fiscal year 2022. The report contains important agency statistics, case highlights and information for OIG stakeholders.

The report shows that more than $86 million was recovered, nearly $222 million was identified for potential future recoveries and more than $41 million in cost avoidance was saved by preventing potentially questionable spending.

The report goes into detail about case and agency highlights, including how the OIG collaborates with district attorneys across the state to protect the integrity of Texas Health and Human Services. It also features examples of how increasingly more Texas providers are working collaboratively with the OIG to voluntarily disclose Medicaid overpayments.

Additionally, the OIG in Focus goes in depth to review the agency’s innovative approach to deploying sophisticated data analysis to detect, deter and prevent fraud, waste and abuse within the state health care delivery system. This effort has led to more than $44 million in settlements between April 2017 and February 2022. You can read this report and previous Quarterly Reports at https://tinyurl.com/TxOIGQR.
