Updated List of Excluded Individuals and Entities (LEIE) Database File
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, 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.
As a best practice, long term care providers should check the LEIE on a regular basis.
