    Delegation Oversight (DO) administrators, DO leaders and first-tier, downstream or related (FDR) entity auditors understand they can delegate the function, but not health plan’s responsibilities. This is why the following processes are critical to an effective Delegation Oversight program:


    The Challenge with Manual Delegation Oversight

    Resources management

    To ensure CMS regulatory compliance requirements are enforced, plan sponsors must monitor the activities of their delegated entities continuously to sustain regulatory compliance, whether they outsource:

    With the ever-changing Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) regulatory requirements, health plans are turning to enterprise software to achieve the following business objectives:

    Sustain a regulatory framework
    Establish a contractual framework
    Achieve unified oversight across all delegates
    Implement a continuous audit and monitoring program

    Delegation Oversight software helps reduce the overall cost of data collection and analysis, from which health plans can effectively advise their delegates. And, if it has the latest CMS protocols, business rules and logic built into it, health plans can improve external audit responses and ensure timely regulatory requirements.
