The US Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General (OIG) has released a report, Health Reform Oversight Plan FY 2015, which describes the OIG’s current and planned efforts to oversee the implementation and management of HHS programs under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

In planning and executing its health reform portfolio, OIG is guided by four key strategic goals including: fighting fraud, waste and abuse; promoting value, safety and quality; securing the future and advancing excellence and innovation.

Key ACA focus areas include:
  • Health Insurance Marketplace; Eligibility – are the Right People Getting the Right Benefits? Management and Administration – Is the Department Managing and Administering Marketplace Programs Effectively and Efficiently?
  • Medicaid Expansion and Services
  • Medicare Payment and Delivery Reform
  • Medicare and Medicaid Integrity and Public Health Programs
