Healthcare Sanction Searches and Screening Programs

We offer four levels of FACIS® reports to search healthcare sanctions and reduce risk exposure

Level 1

Search OIG/GSA and other federal sources including FDA debarments, DEA restrictions and TRICARE (military actions). Meet minimum federal requirements as outlined in the OIG’s Compliance Program Guidance.

Ideal for low-risk employees and contractors not involved with patient care.

Level 1M

Level 1M includes all of Level 1 plus state-level FHEP-related data. This includes information such as state offices of the Medicaid Inspector General or equivalent (28 states), state-level Attorney General News, Medicaid task force (“HEAT”) content and any state-level contractor or procurement debarment data.

A FACIS Level 1M search is now considered the minimal “best practice” due to recent changes in the federal guidelines and under some states’ regulatory schemes.

Level 2

In addition to everything in Level 1, you get a check of statewide sanctions in one state. This meets minimum federal requirements and provides limited state-licensure protection (one state only).

Level 2 is ideal for moderate-risk employees and contractors such as administrators.

Level 3

In addition to all of the services listed above, you get a check of statewide sanctions in all fifty states. This exceeds minimum federal requirements and offers much broader business risk management for existing employees, vendors and contractors.

Ideal for high-risk individuals and contractors — anyone directly involved in patient care or with direct access to patients, such as physicians, nurses, physical therapists, pharmacists, specialized contractors, and so on.
