Cover Your Attestation: Exclusion Lists: Part 2

Cover Your Attestation: Exclusion Lists: Part 2

To help organizations answer some questions that have recently been asked, we thought it would be helpful to "throwback" to our Cover Your Attestation article series we published in January.

In the first part of our Cover Your

part 2
Attestation article series, we discussed why insurance companies are asking for Annual Compliance Attestation. We also discussed annual Corporate Compliance training requirements and how Healthcare Compliance Pros helps your organization meet the applicable requirements.

In this part, we will discuss FDRs (first-tier, downstream, and related entities) requirement for checking exclusion lists.

Exclusion Lists

Medicare Advantage plan sponsors are required to ensure that all FDRs are screening all employees/vendors/subcontractors against the DHHS OIG List of Excluded Individuals and Entities (LEIE) prior to hiring or contracting and then recheck monthly thereaftercompliance questions, please do not hesitate to contact one of our professional consultants.
