Sanctions searches are focused checks within government sanction databases to detect people forbidden from specific activities or industries. It’s an intelligent move to ensure that candidates or employees are not on government employment-ban lists.
Why are these so important for businesses like yours? Violating exclusion rules can lead to fines and jail sentences. It’s particularly applicable currently as there has been recent governmental crackdowns on exclusion notices in a variety of industries.
Why Run a Sanctions Search?
OIG Sanctions Lists
The Department of Health and Human Service’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) upholds a list of people banned from partaking in federal and state healthcare programs. Healthcare firms that deliver care to patients who have plans such as Medicaid or Medicare are barred from engaging with sanctioned individuals or vendors on the OIG Exclusions list.
FACIS: Level 1, 2, and Level 3 Exclusion
The Level 1 search is designed to uncover infractions including license suspensions recorded in dozens of other federal databases. A Level 2 or 3 search can identify lists of individuals with negative records across the healthcare industry.
Disciplinary and Abuse Registries
DataCheck can undertake searches across medical-board archives to uncover disciplinary actions made against an applicant, while also searching for further state-level abuse registries and databases.
