Exclusion and Debarment Service

Did you know?

As both a federal grantee and receiver of CMS payments/reimbursements, FQHCs are obligated to screen all community health center Employees, Vendors, Contractors, Board Members, and Volunteers on a monthly basis on all state OIG lists, and federal OIG and SAM (debarment) lists.  We know that being fully compliant in this area can be a challenge for many health centers as these obligations can be a burden on health center resources.  Many health centers struggle with having dedicated staff for this task.

Is your health center compliant?
Do you know your community health center’s obligations?

Use our new assessment tool to see how well your health center is meeting compliance obligations!

We’ve got you covered

TPCA has created a service specifically geared toward FQHCs that will help keep you in compliance and reduce your risk.  We provide full-service monthly Exclusion & Debarment screening that screens your records on the federal OIG list, federal GSA/SAM list and all of the state OIG lists.  After much research, we believe we have acquired the most robust search engine available on the market.  This search engine automatically searches records against known aliases, nicknames and name diminutives. 
 

The work is all on us

Our service is just that – Full Service!  We screen for you each month, we validate when potential matches come up, and we will reach out to you each month to verify there are no changes to your data.  We also run reports to document your screenings each month to ensure documentation of compliance.
 

Our reviews

"Thank you for offering this service. I feel so much better about being in compliance with the screenings than when I completed them by myself. The ease of using this screening tool is great."
   - Jennifer Hembree, Rural Medical Services
 
“At Morgan County Medical Center our focus is providing quality healthcare to our patients, but to do that we must meet the compliance standards of our federal grant. Tennessee Primary Care Association helps us do just that through its Exclusion and Debarment Service. TPCA’s staff could not have made it easier for us to participate, and it brings us peace of mind to know that proof is just a few mouse clicks away if we are ever asked to prove we screen our employees and vendors on a monthly basis. We appreciate TPCA for providing this valuable service at a price we can easily afford.”
   - Judy Byrge, Morgan County Medical Center
