As an employer in any healthcare related field, you are required to ensure the individuals working for you are not excluded from participating in any federally funded program, including Medicare and Medicaid. Regularly screening your employees against the OIG (Office of Inspector General) and GSA (General Services Administration) databases will help you confirm that those working for you and with your patients are able to provide those services in the eyes of the federal government.
The OIG/GSA search is vital for healthcare industries participating in Medicare, Medicaid or other federally funded programs. If an organization employs an individual on these sanctioned lists they may be forced to pay back all federal funds received via these programs going back to the date the person was employed.

Employers in the healthcare industry may choose to occasionally screen their entire workforce, or a subset of employees, to ensure nothing new appears in the database after they have begun employment. This becomes especially critical when employees have contact with sensitive populations, and to stay in compliance with federal requirements. Using The Cube’s batch ordering process is very simple way to run a large group of employees at once to complete annual, semi-annual, or quarterly screening.
