It is good to provide your Compliance Committee with a list of recent self-disclosures by other organizations once in a while. This gives you an opportunity to have the discussion about whether your organization has compliance risks in these same areas. It is helpful to generate a discussion about what controls are in place, as well as areas to consider for the organization’s next compliance risk assessment. Table 1 provides a list of compliance risk areas from recent self-disclosures to the Office of Inspector General (OIG) as well as the payment amount.
