What to expect when calling the OIG Hotline:

When calling the OIG Hotline, callers may speak to an OIG employee, who will ask a series of questions regarding the complaint.  At times, due to call volume or scheduling, an analyst will be unavailable to speak with the caller directly. However, if the caller leaves their basic contact information, an OIG employee will be in touch as quickly as possible.
