ComplianceLine™, a leading provider of compliance hotline services, now offers SanctionCheck an online searchable database for compliance officers, human resource managers, and anyone involved in the exclusion review process. SanctionCheck allows our clients to search for individuals or entities that have been sanctioned, disbarred or otherwise excluded from participation in federally funded health care programs 24 hours a day, seven days a week, from any location throughout the world.

SanctionCheck is a valuable tool used in many organizations’ exclusion review process. Due to recent statutory enactments, that have expanded the OIG’s (Office of Inspector General’s) authority to exclude individuals and entities from participation in Medicare, Medicaid, and other Federal health care programs, exclusion review has become a greater priority. Under some government imposed integrity agreements the government has imposed that all employees, staff, and vendors be checked within 90 days of the agreement, and any expense incurred cannot be charged on the cost report. Furthermore, the OIG is now able to impose civil money penalties (CMP’s) for misconduct related to Federal health care programs.
