DSRIP Compliance Requirements – Updated December 29, 2017
Under New York State law and requirements of the Office of Medicaid Inspector General (OMIG), all OneCity Health partners need to provide their workforce with New York State Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) compliance training in the first half of 2018.
This is also a Phase III Participation Requirement in our partners Phase III Comprehensive Schedule B. Please see Section E in the sample Phase III Comprehensive Schedule B we posted to our website in December, 2017
We have prepared materials to help our partners easily meet this requirement by June 30, 2018.
Below please find:

- How to meet this requirement
- Next steps
- Who to contact with questions
We appreciate our partners’ support in meeting this New York State obligation
About DSRIP Compliance Training
In the “Downloads” box to the right, please find a memorandum prepared by the NYC Health + Hospitals/OneCity Health Office of Corporate Compliance (OCC) which details the requirement that partners provide their workforce members who are involved or associated with, or otherwise affected by, the DSRIP Program, with DSRIP compliance training.
How to Meet this Requirement
To assist partners, within the memorandum (beginning page 9) is a presentation titled “Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment Program Compliance Training and Education.” The PowerPoint addresses the following:
- Introduction to DSRIP
- General Compliance Requirements for Medicaid Providers
- Special Considerations for DSRIP Compliance
- Fraud, Waste and Abuse & Relevant Laws
- Reporting Compliance Issues
OneCity Health partners are welcome to utilize this presentation to satisfy their DSRIP compliance training and education requirements. Specifically, they can:
- Use it to develop a presentation for in-person/live compliance and education training;
- Incorporate the content of the PowerPoint into their existing compliance training and education computerized modules (e.g., automated online training); or
- Simply distribute the PowerPoint to their workforce members involved with or otherwise affected by the DSRIP program.
We recommend our partners consult with their legal counsel if they have questions.
In February 2018, we will update this page with instructions on how to certify that our partners have met the DSRIP compliance and education training requirements as described in the memorandum. The certifications will be due by June 30, 2018.
