Self-Disclosure Program

Individuals or entities who wish to voluntarily disclose self-discovered potential fraud to Defense Health Agency, Program Integrity office (DHA-PI) may do so under the Self-Disclosure Program (SDP).

Self-disclosure gives the providers and other entities who provide services the opportunity to avoid the costs and disruptions associated with a Government-directed investigation and civil or administrative litigation.

DHA-PI endeavors to work cooperatively with disclosing parties who are forthcoming, thorough, and transparent in their disclosures in resolving these matters. While DHA-PI does not speak for the Department of Justice or other Federal agencies, DHA-PI consults with those Federal agencies, as appropriate, regarding the resolution of SDP matters.

Disclosing parties that wish to make a submission to the SDP may do so using this online form.  Upon receiving the submission, DHA-PI may additionally require other information it may need to adequately research the acceptance of a self-disclosure request.  However, initial electronic submission of the self-disclosure will begin the process.

The public disclosure of personally identifiable information is restricted by the Privacy Act.

Allegations of fraud/abuse within the TRICARE program should be reported via the DHA Program Integrity link, health.mil/fraud.  Non-health care matters, should be reported to the Defense Health Agency Office of Inspector General (OIG) Hotline, or if military, to the Department of Defense OIG Hotline or the respective military service OIG Hotline.

SDP submissions must conform to the requirements outlined in the DHA guidance.  Incomplete or premature submissions will not be considered.

*Disclosing parties already subject to a Government inquiry (including investigations, audits, or other oversight activities) are not automatically precluded from using the SDP. The disclosure, however, must be made in good faith and must not be an attempt to circumvent any ongoing inquiry. Disclosing parties under Corporate Integrity Agreements (CIA) with DHA may also use the SDP in addition to making any reports required in the CIA.

*Disclosing parties are advised that the self-disclosure may be shared with other Federal agencies.
