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. If you are one of these providers, you 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.
