Medicare and Medicaid requirements are clear,
especially concerning sanctions and exclusions.
So are the penalties for not complying. Don’t run
the risk. Protect yourself with SanctionCheck.
The risk is great
For organizations providing services to
Medicare and Medicaid patients, ensuring
an institution’s compliance with regulatory
requirements prohibiting employment of
sanctioned individuals has potentially very
costly implications. Hiring or continuing
to employ physicians, allied healthcare
professionals, nurses, contractors or vendors
who have been sanctioned or excluded can
jeopardize your ability to be reimbursed by
Medicare and Medicaid. It can also subject
your institution to the risk of Civil Monetary
A complex challenge
In the continuing effort to combat fraud and
abuse in Medicare and Medicaid programs,
the Office of Inspector General of the U.S.
Department of Health and Human Services
has issued guidelines requiring sanctions
and monetary penalties for healthcare
organizations receiving federal money that
employ or extend privileges to individuals
who have been excluded or sanctioned.
This presents a complex challenge, since
simply checking the OIG and GSA lists is
not sufficient to protect your organization.
No less than 58 federal agencies and all 50
state Medicaid agencies have the authority to
issue sanctions and exclusions. Furthermore,
due diligence dictates that such screening be
conducted on an ongoing basis. With the
number and diversity of agencies involved,
this screening can be complex and timeconsuming
for you and your staff.
