Notice; Correction.


This document sets forth a correction to the OIG Federal Register Start Printed Page 22271notice published on March 29, 2012 (78 FR 19271), on our recently issued Special Fraud Alert on Physician-Owned Entities. Specifically, the Special Fraud Alert addressed physician-owned entities that derive revenue from selling, or arranging for the sale of, implantable medical devices ordered by their physician-owners for use in procedures the physician-owners perform on their own patients at hospitals or ambulatory surgical centers. An inadvertent error appeared in the DATES caption of that document regarding the effective date. Accordingly, we are removing the language regarding the effective date to ensure technical correctness of the document.
