Updated List of Excluded Individuals and Entities (LEIE) Database File-April 2021The US Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General (OIG) has released its updated List of Excluded Individuals and Entities (LEIE) database file, which reflects all OIG exclusions and reinstatement actions up to, and including, those taken in April 2021. This new file replaces the updated LEIE database file available for download last month. Individuals and entities that have been reinstated to the federal health care programs are not included in this file.
The updated files are posted on OIG's website at http://www.oig.hhs.gov/exclusions/exclusions_list.asp, and healthcare providers have an “affirmative duty" to check to ensure that excluded individuals are not working in their facilities or face significant fines.
Instructional videos explaining how to use the online database and the downloadable files are available at http://oig.hhs.gov/exclusions/download.asp.
As a best practice, long term care providers should check the LEIE on a regular basis.
