Monthly Screening Requirement Alert

Vendormate account managers are often asked about how frequently sanction checks need to be performed. Our response of “monthly” is based on the frequency with which the lists are updated and statements from CMS.

A recent legal alert from Garfunkel Wild, P.C. highlighted a reminder from the New York State Office of the Medicaid Inspector General “that all employees, vendors and referral sources should be checked upon hire (if applicable) and then on a monthly basis, at a minimum…” against state and federal disqualification or exclusion lists.

You can also read it directly in the New York State Medicaid Update April 2010, Vol. 26 # 6.

This requirement isn’t new, but the momentum continues. We first noted this in August, 2008. One year later, we posted a list of states that had reinforced the same message. Apparently, the list continues to grow.

Entry filed under: HHS OIG LEIE.
