A Synopsis of 2014 Exclusion Fines

Posted by Frank Strafford on May 14, 2015 in Exclusions, Uncategorized,

Here is a helpful infographic detailing the 2014 OIG Exclusion Fines. Using charts and maps, the infographic is divided into sections by type, by month, and by state. A quick look reveals 15 types of health care facilities/programs, with the highest fine for August 2014 at over $2 million, and California as the highest-fined state with over $4 million. There is a “bottomline” figure towards the end of the chart indicating the total number and amount of fines for that year.

This infographic serves as a great reminder for health care organizations to keep LEIE in mind at all times, and to invest in a reliable screening process to avoid astronomical exclusion fines.
