The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General needed 10 pages to list all of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act investigations it hopes to complete by Sept. 30.
The agency, an arm of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, included the list in an appendix to the 2014 HHS OIG work plan.
Congress created the agency to protect the integrity of HHS programs and program enrollees.
The agency will be reviewing work on many different PPACA programs this year, not just the health insurance exchange program.
Some of the PPACA-related reviews will focus on Medicaid expansion, controls at the troubled Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan program, and use of Consumer Operated and Oriented Plan startup loans.
Key areas of exchange program interest include payment accuracy, benefits eligibility determination systems, vendor contract management, and data security and privacy.
