OIG reports $100.7 million in second-quarter recoveries

The Office of Inspector General published its second quarterly report for fiscal year 2024, with performance metrics, case summaries and agency highlights. The report shows OIG teams recovered more than $100.7 million and identified more than $324.1 million in potential future recoveries. Additionally, the OIG saved Texas taxpayers more than $42.7 million through cost-avoidance measures.

The OIG Quarterly Report also details recently settled cases, allowing readers to see specific examples of how the agency detects and deters fraud, waste and abuse in Texas Health and Human Services programs. This quarter summarizes three audits, four inspections, nine provider cases and 10 additional cases that highlight the agency’s efforts to protect HHS program integrity.

Sharing these insights provides transparency for taxpayers and maintains a historical record of the agency’s efforts. The 20th anniversary of the OIG has shown that the quarterly report is often a key publication in capturing the agency’s impact on preventing fraud, waste and abuse.

Current and previous quarterly reports are available here. The OIG will publish the next quarterly report in June.
