Office of the Secretary, Health Care Fraud and Abuse Data Collection Program: Reporting of Final Adverse Actions; Correction
This document proposes a correction to the final regulations, which were published in the Federal Register on October 26, 1999 (64 FR 57740). These regulations established a national health care fraud and abuse data collection program for the reporting and disclosing of certain adverse actions taken against health care providers, suppliers and practitioners, and for maintaining a data base of final adverse actions taken against health care providers, suppliers and practitioners. An inadvertent error appeared in the text of the regulations concerning the definition of the term ``any other negative action or finding.'' As a result, we are proposing to correct 45 CFR 61.3, Definitions, to assure the technical correctness of these regulations.
