Exclusion and Sanction Databanks

While searches of the National Practitioner Data Bank (NPDB), the Healthcare Integrity and Protection Databank (HIPDB), System for Award Management (SAM) and State databases can and should be used in addition to HHS’s Exclusion database, they are not a substitute.

Adequate exclusion screening can only be done by including the List of Excluded Individuals/Entities (LEIE). Because the LEIE is updated monthly, both the OIG and CMS recommend monthly checks of both individuals and contractors. Diligence in this important function can save you having to refund.
