Recently, the Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General (HHS OIG) released its mid-year update to its fiscal year (FY) 2016 work plan. New initiatives are indicated in the following list of Medicaid-related work:
Hospitals are invited to participate in a stakeholder call with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to discuss an important update as it relates to the Affordable Care Act. The speaker will be Jocelyn Samuels, director of the Office for Civil Rights. There will also be the opportunity for questions and answers.
Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell has announced the availability of $100 million from the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to support an estimated 150 new health center sites across the country in 2015. New health center sites will increase access to comprehensive, affordable, high quality primary health care services in the communities that need it most.
