CIAs and IAs in 2022 – A Year in Review

Jennifer Kirchner | February 2023

In 2022, 25 providers and organizations entered into Corporate Integrity Agreements (CIAs) or Integrity Agreements (IAs) with the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (OIG). CIAs and IAs are negotiated by the OIG with health care providers and organizations as a means to settle allegations relating to violations of civil false claims statutes. In exchange for providers or organizations agreeing to the terms and conditions of the CIA or IA, the OIG agrees not to pursue exclusion of the provider or organization from participation in Medicare, Medicaid, or other Federal health care programs.
