The mission of the Office of Inspector General (OIG) is to safeguard the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) programs and the wellbeing of its beneficiaries. The OIG has the authority to prohibit individuals and entities from federally subsidized health care programs. They also maintain an exclusion list of all current individual and entities prohibited from participating called the List of Excluded Individuals/Entities (LEIE).
Employers are encouraged to run an OIG Exclusion Search to periodically monitor their current employees. This will be to ensure that they do not appear on the List of Excluded Individuals/Entities (LEIE) as it might be detrimental to the organization’s image and operations.
