Q: Do I need to conduct OIG searches on my existing staff in addition to new hires?

A: The OIG report is the most commonly requested search on existing health care staff. Facilities often choose to get updated reports annually or biannually. This is a small investment to ensure compliance.

Q: Is the OIG report included in any other searches you offer?

A: Yes. The OIG report is included in the FACIS® Health Care Sanctions search. You can order the OIG search independently based on your organization’s needs. This option is ideal for required update searches on current staff.

Q: Why do I need an OIG sanctions report?

A: Organizations that employ sanctioned individuals may be forced to return all federal funds received from these programs going back to the date the person became employed. The OIG report is an inexpensive preventative measure against losing federal funding.
