Additional Screening Services
This service is specific to the health care field. Under a Congressional mandate, the Office of Inspector General (OIG) established a program to exclude certain individuals and entities from participating in federally funded health care programs. The OIG, through this program, maintains a list of all currently excluded parties called the List of Excluded Individuals/Entities. Bases for exclusion include convictions for program-related fraud and patient abuse, licensing board actions, and default on Health Education Assistance Loans.
