OIG Exclusions Report
The OIG Exclusions Report is a list of excluded individuals and entities (LEIE) that are excluded from participation in Medicare, Medicaid and other Federal health care programs maintained by the Office of Inspector General. This list is currently included in our Search America® database, but we offer this as a stand-alone report for clients in the healthcare industry.
OIG is required by law to exclude from participation in all Federal health care programs individuals and entities convicted of the following types of criminal offenses: Medicare or Medicaid fraud, as well as any other offenses related to the delivery of items or services under Medicare, Medicaid, SCHIP, or other State health care programs; patient abuse or neglect; felony convictions for other health care-related fraud, theft, or other financial misconduct; and felony convictions relating to unlawful manufacture, distribution, prescription, or dispensing of controlled substances.
To avoid civil monetary penalties (CMP) health care entities need to routinely check the LEIE to ensure that new hires and current employees are not on the excluded list.
