Medical Exclusion Search


Description
The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (“HHS”) and Office of Inspection General (“OIG”) have established minimum requirements for eligibility to work and receive payments in the health care industry. Certain individuals and entities are excluded (List of Excluded Individuals and Entities, “LEIE”). The OIG Policy bulletin states that “no Federal health care program payment may be made for any items or services furnished (1) by an excluded person or (2) at the medical direction or on the prescription of an excluded person.” If an organization hires or pays an excluded party, governmental agencies may impose stiff penalties.

MedEC searches screen individuals and organizations that are prohibited from receiving Federal financial and non-financial assistance. This search includes OIG exclusion data plus a search of the System for Award Management (SAM) exclusion data. All search results are verified against the Applicant’s ID data.

MedEC+ Pro Search
MedEC+ Pro searches provide the same level of information as the MedEC+ search plus the additional data found in State Board Actions data. This search complies with both Federal and State compliance requirements. All search results are verified against the Applicant’s ID data.
