Monitoring the OIG Exclusion List


A critical component of a hospice’s corporate compliance program is ensuring that individuals or entities that are excluded from participating in federally funded programs (i.e., hospices) are not hired or retained. In this webinar, the presenter reviews the importance of monitoring the LEIE and consequences for not doing so. In addition, information is provided regarding who needs to be monitored, how to conduct monthly checks of the LEIE and the importance of documenting that the monthly checks have been conducted.
