HCAF has posted the latest exclusion and reinstatements that were released by CMS’ Office of the Investigator General (OIG) on February 6, 2013. The list includes physicians and other provider types in Florida.
Health care providers must be careful not to make payments to sanctioned entities or employ sanctioned individuals. No payment will be made by any federal health care program for any items or services furnished, ordered, or prescribed by an excluded individual or entity. Federal health care programs include Medicare, Medicaid, and all other plans and programs that provide health benefits funded directly or indirectly by the United States.
The basis for exclusion includes convictions for program-related fraud and patient abuse, licensing board actions and default on Health Education Assistance Loans.
Please compare your referring physicians, employees or vendors against the listing of excluded individuals.
