Healthcare Sanctions Reports

Conducting prudent and reasonable background checks for the SANCTION HISTORY of its agents, contractors, current/prospective employees and vendors

How Confident Are You?

  • That every provider you employ has not been excluded or debarred by OIG/GSA and state exclusion lists.
  • That each provider is properly licensed.
  • That there are no outstanding sanctions or disciplinary actions.
  • That you’re maintaining the required certificates (ACLS, BLS, CPR).
  • Your files are ready for a Joint Commission audit.

Providers can be placed on the OIG sanctions list for the following violations:

  • Sexual assault.
  • Patient abuse.
  • Fraudulent billing.
  • Criminal convictions related to Medicare or Medicaid.
  • Failure to repay a Federal Student Loans.
  • Health Education Assistance Loan (HEAL).
  • Convictions involving controlled substances.

It is important for healthcare organizations to screen all employees for exclusions, including providers, contractors, and vendors, referring physicians and even corporate directors and officers. Regulators can impose fines for employing any excluded employee who is a “contributor of care.”

The penalties are harsh. For facilities participating in Medicare/Medicaid, there’s a fine of up to $10,000 for each item or service billed by that provider, plus up to three times the amount the organization was reimbursed by Medicare. The facility may also face charges under the Federal False Claim Act. And PPACA Clause 6502 states that the facility may lose its CMS reimbursement privileges entirely.

A FACIS® (Fraud and Abuse Control Information System) search identifies any wrong actions of individuals and entities in the health care field. This includes information on disciplinary actions ranging from exclusions and debarments to letters of reprimand and probation. Our FACIS® search offers three options, ranging from the minimum federal requirements to a search inclusive of more than 800 sources in 50 states.
