OPENonline 0 1380

The HHS Office of Inspector General (OIG) issued an Updated Special Advisory Bulletin on the Effect of Exclusion from Participation in Federal Health Care Programs on May 8, 2013. These guidelines recommend that health care providers screen their employees and contractors monthly to confirm that they are not on the OIG’s List of Excluded Individuals/Entities (EXCLUSION LIST).

In the past few years, we have seen an influx of complex regulations and increased litigation in the industry, making it even more difficult for companies to adhere to compliance best practices. Inadequate due diligence and negligent hiring practices in the healthcare sector harms not only an organization, but its patients, as well. More often than not, poor hiring decisions are a contributing factor in the rise of lawsuits, medical malpractice claims, and subsequent multimillion dollar settlements.

The big questions?

  • Is your business in the health care industry?
  • Do you participate in any Federal health care programs?
  • Do you receive any Federal funding?
  • Are you aware of the screening requirements?
