What is Vigilant MEDS?
The OIG has been clear about the need to monitor your staff, at a minimum of once per month to be compliant.
Healthcare entities are required to ensure that their employees and vendors are not sanctioned by Federal or State regulatory agencies and thus ineligible for reimbursement for services rendered under Federal and State programs. A sanctioned or excluded provider is an individual or business that has violated one more regulations and has been penalized through statutory or regulatory process from participation in a governmental program, such as Medicare or Medicaid.
How does it work?
The various regulatory agencies involved include OIG (US Department of Health & Human Services Office of Inspector General), GSA (US General Services Administration), NYS OMIG (New York State Office of the Medicaid Inspector General), and many more. These agencies each keep lists of excluded individuals and the lists are available for healthcare entities to utilize for name comparison purposes. The verification process entails two steps outlined below. Commercial Investigations LLC can assist healthcare entities with both steps or just the second step of the process. In completing both steps of the process, Commercial Investigations LLC outsources the first step of the process through a valued partnership.
