Per the Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) regulations, all entities within the United States, US incorporated entities, US citizens, and permanent resident aliens are required to comply with OFAC regulations. This tool cross-references a provided name against the OFAC’ Specially Designated Nationals and Block Persons watch list and the Denied Persons List of the US Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS).
This keeps your company in compliance with regulations of the Patriot Act of 2001 that require all organizations and entities in the United States to protect the country from those on the OFAC and BIS lists.
The OIG exclusion has national scope and is important to many institutional healthcare providers because Congress enacted a civil monetary penalty for healthcare institutions that knowingly hire excluded parties.
Accordingly, the OIG maintains the List of Excluded Individuals/Entities (LEIE), a database that provides information to the public, healthcare providers, patients, and others relating to parties excluded from participation in Medicare, Medicaid, and all other federal healthcare programs.
The FACIS searches a vast database containing adverse actions associated with individuals and entities sanctioned in the healthcare field. It includes information on disciplinary actions, which can range from exclusions and disbarments to letters of reprimand and probation. Learn more here.
The National Practitioner Databank (NPDB) was created by Congress to identify healthcare professionals who have been reported for unprofessional or incompetent practices. It is a repository of reports to help prevent healthcare fraud and abuse and has the ultimate goal of protecting the public.
