The Office of the Inspector General maintains an updated list of all excluded parties. Federal programs (eg, Medicare, Medicaid) will not pay for anything that an excluded party furnishes, orders, or prescribes. This payment prohibition applies to the excluded party and anyone who employs or contracts with the excluded party, as well as any hospital or other facility where the excluded party provides services. Every practice should access this list to ensure that no employee or potential employee is included. The List of Excluded Individuals/Entities can be found at http://www.oig.hhs.gov/fraud/exclusions/listofexcluded.html.
