OIG reports $112 million in second-quarter recoveries

The Office of Inspector General published its second quarterly report for fiscal year 2023, with performance metrics, case summaries and agency highlights. The report shows OIG team members recovered more than $112 million and identified more than $376 million in potential future recoveries. Additionally, the OIG saved Texas taxpayers more than $45 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, prevents and deters fraud, waste and abuse in Texas Health and Human Services (HHS) programs.  As the OIG pursues our mission of protecting Medicaid program integrity, another key component of our success is tied to our ability to educate stakeholders. The OIG has a unique vantage point in the overall health and human service landscape. As our teams conduct audits, inspections, investigations and reviews, they gain valuable insights that can be tapped to improve outcomes system-wide. This issue’s OIG In Focus provides a perfect example, summarizing our observations from audits of HHS contracts across a variety of programs and agencies.

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