Office of Inspector General (OIG) List of Excluded Individuals/Entities

The healthcare and long-term care industries require certain specialized screening to ensure the individuals or entities being hired or retained as employees or vendors have no incidents on their records involving past system abuse or fraud. A key screening option is the Office of Inspector General (OIG) List of Excluded Individuals/Entities (LEIE). 

The List of Excluded Individuals/Entities (LEIE) is a database of individuals and entities that are not allowed to receive payment by specified federal healthcare programs (including but not limited to Medicare and Medicaid). The basis for an individual or entity to be included in the LEIE list includes:

  • Program-related fraud
  • Patient abuse
  • Licensing board actions
  • Default on Health Education Assistance loans

To complete this screen as part of a background check, Orange Tree uses the List of Excluded Individuals/Entities (LEIE) maintained by the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office of Inspector General (OIG). 

 

General Services Administration (GSA) Excluded Parties List

Another resource often paired with OIG in a background check is a search of the General Services Administration (GSA) Excluded Parties List. This search leverages the Excluded Parties List System (EPLS) maintained by the General Services Administration (GSA).

The Excluded Parties List System (EPLS) is a single comprehensive list of individuals and firms excluded by federal government agencies from receiving federal contracts or federally approved subcontracts, and from certain types of federal financial and non-financial assistance benefits. The Excluded Parties List System (EPLS) is maintained to keep agencies current on administrative and statutory exclusions taken throughout the federal government.
