NYS OMIG Offers Financial Relief for Audits

NOTICE | JULY 20, 2021

Financial Hardship Application and Information

The Office of the Medicaid Inspector General (OMIG) has developed and implemented a new process that affords providers the opportunity to apply for relief in the event an OMIG audit may pose a financial hardship to the organization.

Providers that have received a Final Audit Report and wish to apply for financial hardship consideration may contact the Bureau of Collections Management at The Bureau will send to the provider a Financial Hardship Application. Upon receipt, OMIG will review the application and make a determination as to an appropriate re-payment plan.

Providers must complete the application in its entirety to be eligible for relief. Those providers who already are in a repayment agreement with OMIG will be required to complete an application upon their one-year review by OMIG.

Sample Financial Hardship Applications are posted on OMIG’s website.

Providers that have questions or are seeking additional information on the Financial Hardship process are encouraged to email the Bureau at
