The amendment adds a requirement for the Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services to report on implementation of the requirements regarding providers disenrolled for reasons related to fraud, integrity and quality. Finally, the amendments clarify that the fee-for-service provider directory is to include physicians and, at state option, other providers, and provides other information that could be included in the directory.
