Fraud and Abuse Control Information System (FACIS®)

The Fraud and Abuse Control Information System (FACIS®) is a proprietary database that consists of publically available records of sanctions and adverse actions taken in the healthcare field. Frequently, companies or organizations in this industry will include a Fraud and Abuse Control Information System (FACIS®) screen as part of their background check, to ensure compliance with state and federal regulations on hiring. 

In support of creating an employment background screening program tailored to your needs, Orange Tree offers employers four different FACIS options from which to choose:

  • FACIS® 1: The most basic level of FACIS®, this search meets the federal requirements outlined in the Office of Inspector General Compliance Program Guidance. The FACIS® 1 search includes search of the federal Excluded Parties List System (EPLS) maintained by the General Service Administration, the List of Excluded Individuals and Entities (LEIE) maintained by the Office of the Inspector General.
  • FACIS® M: This search includes information contained in the FACIS® Level 1 search, as well as state specific Medicare and Medicaid data where available.
  • FACIS® 3: The FACIS Level 3 search includes information contained in the FACIS® Level 1 & M searches plus records contained in the database for all state sources.
