What Organizations Are Entitled to Self-Disclosure?
All healthcare providers who are subject to the civil monetary penalty statutes are eligible to self-disclose under the self-disclosure protocol. Obviously, there are some parameters there as far as making sure that providers self-disclosing have done their homework, they know what the issue is and they understand what they’re getting into. They’re going to be cooperating with the government. They understand that there are going to be questions to be answered. There’s going to be an initiative to action from the healthcare provider’s standpoint to address the matter within a 90-day period.
