  • On October 1, 2007, the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General ("OIG") issued its 2008 Work Plan, which sets forth the projects planned for the next fiscal year. Although the OIG's 2008 Work Plan does not include a list of planned investigations (which are driven in large part by calls to the OIG hotline and whistleblower cases rather than by the OIG itself), the list of upcoming audits, evaluations, and inspections does provide some insight into those areas that the OIG believes have the greatest potential for overpayments, fraud, and abuse.
