When should I call the Inspector General's Hotline on waste, fraud, and abuse?


You should contact the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) Hotline to report fraud and abuse in the programs and initiatives administered by the Department of Health and Human Services. The Hotline screens all submissions to determine whether the situation falls under the jurisdiction of the OIG and whether there is sufficient information to pursue the matter further.

The Hotline is not the proper venue to complain about Department policy. Similarly, the Hotline is not able to provide information about Department programs, comment on OIG activity, or offer judgments on hypothetical situations.
