What is it?
The Office of Inspector General investigates complaints or allegations of wrongdoing or misconduct by employees or contractors that involve or give rise to fraud, waste or abuse within the programs or operations of the Federal Communications Commission. The Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General’s (OIG) List of Excluded Individuals and Entities (LEIE) sanctioned from Medicare, Medicaid and all federal healthcare programs. The search details if a candidate is on the exclusion list for one of the following reasons: program-related fraud (e.g. Medicare/Medicaid), patient abuse, or licensing board action.
How does it work?
OIG's LEIE provides information to the healthcare industry, patients and the public regarding individuals and entities currently excluded from participation in Medicare, Medicaid and all other Federal healthcare programs. Individuals and entities who have been reinstated are removed from the LEIE.
The Online Searchable Database enables users to enter the name of an individual or entity and determine whether they are currently excluded. If a match is made on an individual, the database can verify with an individual's Social Security Number (SSN) that the match is unique. Employer Identification Numbers (EINs) are available for verification of excluded entities.

Why run this search?
The OIG search will give insight into whether an applicant has been sanctioned from Medicare, Medicaid and all federal healthcare programs for program-related fraud (e.g. Medicare/Medicaid), patient abuse, or licensing board action.
