Medicare/Medicaid Fraud History (OIG Check) identifies
individuals who are listed by the federal government for
illegal activities. These individuals are banned
from receiving payment in connection with federal healthcare
programs. Employers who receive payments from these federal
programs must avoid hiring banned persons to protect
their own ability to receive federal payments.
Hospitals, nursing homes, and other healthcare organizations
use this service.
The service scans a banned-persons database from
the U.S. Office of Inspector General (OIG). The
OIG collects data on persons and organizations convicted
of patient abuse or fraud, sanctioned by a licensing board,
or who have defaulted on certain federal loans.
