No payment is to be made or contract to be entered into by any Federal health care program for any items or services furnished, ordered, or prescribed by an excluded individual or entity. This prohibition applies to the excluded entity and anyone who employs or contracts with the excluded entity. The exclusion applies regardless of who submits the claims and applies to all administrative and management services furnished by the excluded entity.

There are civil penalties of up to $10,000 for each item or service furnished by the excluded individual or entity, plus Civil Money Penalties (CMPs) of three times the amount claimed for each item/service. Without Vigilance your agency could be forced to repay tens of thousands of dollars to the government.

Why take the risk?
