Provider Self-Disclosure Protocol

Individuals or entities who wish to voluntarily disclose self-discovered potential fraud to OIG may do so under the Self-Disclosure Protocol (SDP).  Self-disclosure gives the health care industry the opportunity to avoid the costs and disruptions associated with a Government-directed investigation and civil or administrative litigation.

OIG endeavors to work cooperatively with disclosing parties who are forthcoming, thorough, and transparent in their disclosures in resolving these matters. While OIG does not speak for the Department of Justice or other agencies, OIG consults with those agencies, as appropriate, regarding the resolution of SDP matters. 

Disclosing parties that wish to make a submission to the SDP may do so using this form or by sending a written submission as directed by the OIG guidance. OIG may have additional questions regarding your submission, however, this interactive form will guide you through making a complete disclosure. 

During our review and resolution of these matters, OIG will comply with the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).  Also, the public disclosure of personally identifiable information is restricted by the Privacy Act.

Notifications of someone else’s improper conduct are not appropriate for the Protocol and should be addressed to OIG’s Hotline or submitted through OIG’s Report Fraud form. 

SDP submissions must conform to the requirements outlined in the OIG guidance. Incomplete or premature submissions may be rejected.
