Program Integrity After the Enactment of Health Reform, TrendWatch, May 2011
Despite problems and redundancies that hospitals and others have identified in federal health care program integrity efforts, the Administration's strong emphasis on fighting fraud, waste and abuse and the issue's bipartisan appeal suggest that these initiatives will not be temporary and that hospitals must seek to improve program integrity operations for the indefinite future. By understanding the areas of new and enhanced program integrity focus required by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA) as well as existing program integrity initiatives, hospitals will be better able to prepare for the greater oversight of their activities that is almost certain to occur and potentially avoid the cost and disruption that are often associated with those activities.
