When hiring new staff it is essential to verify them as well as your vendors on the US Department of Health and Human Services, List of Excluded Individuals / Entities (LEIE). You can search that database here - https://exclusions.oig.hhs.gov/
The OIG exclusions list is for ensuring that you do not hire individuals that have been deemed to be needing to be excluded from being hired or done business with. If you knew or should have known that they were excluded from participation in the California Medicaid program (Medi-Cal) and that no Medi-Cal payments could be made for items or services to those individuals or vendors you can be liable and it can cost your organization a lot of money.
