Do I have to identify myself if I report fraud to the Inspector General?


The OIG Hotline takes all allegations of fraud and abuse seriously. Providing your identity and contact information, however, could facilitate any subsequent investigation, as the agency assigned to review your complaint may have additional questions. OIG will exercise due caution to protect your identity, but we can provide no guarantees of this.

If you choose to remain anonymous, the best method to transmit your complaint would be via regular mail:

Office of the Inspector General
HHS TIPS Hotline
P.O. Box 23489
Washington, DC 20026
