Deficit Reduction Act of 2005
Section 6032 of the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 (DRA) requires providers who meet the definition of entity and who make or receive annual Medicaid payments of $5 million or more to establish and disseminate certain written policies for preventing and detecting fraud, waste and abuse. The entities must also provide information to employees and contractors about the Federal False Claims Act and other applicable federal and state false claims laws, the administrative remedies for false claims and statements, and the “whistleblower” protections afforded under such laws.
Each year the Department requires providers who are subject to Section 6032 to provide certain documentation to show compliance with these requirements. Providers will receive an email from the Department requesting this documentation. Please ensure the contact information in the DXC system is current so that you will receive this email.
The DRA Declaration FFY2020 form must be included in your response to the Department. To obtain the DRA Declaration FFY2020 form, click this link. The completed DRA Declaration, a copy of the employee handbook or Code of Conduct containing the written policies, the rights of employees to be protected as whistleblowers and a copy of policies and procedures for detecting and preventing fraud, waste and abuse must be emailed to email@example.com no later than November 2, 2020.
