Common Elements of Corporate Integrity Agreements

A Corporate Integrity Agreement (CIA) is negotiated with a healthcare provider or entity. This type of agreement is part of a settlement of federal healthcare program investigations arising under false claims statutes. In exchange for the agreement, the OIG agrees not to exclude the provider or entity from participation in the federal healthcare programs. Implementation and oversight of CIAs require significant personnel and financial resources. 
All types of organizations and providers may be impacted including pharmaceutical companies, medical device companies, hospitals, nursing homes and long term care facilities, and medical practices.
