Excerpt: “While we are concerned about this backlog of unimplemented recommendations, we believe there is a path forward to address this issue. The start of your term as CMS Administrator provides a tremendous opportunity to bring results-oriented management and accountability to CMS. In that spirit, and in consultation with the HHS OIG, attached is a list of 12 HHS OIG unimplemented recommendations made to CMS in a variety of prior HHS OIG reports on Medicare and Medicaid. We believe that implementing these recommendations—all of which appear to be low cost and uncontested by CMS—within a year is an achievable goal.”
