The Office of the Inspector General’s (OIG) List of Excluded Individuals/Entities (LEIE) provides information to the health care industry, patients and the public regarding individuals and entities currently excluded from participation in Medicare, Medicaid and all other Federal health care programs. The OIG imposes exclusions under the authority of sections 1128 and 1156 of the Social Security Act which outline conditions and timeframes for exclusion. Individuals and entities who have been reinstated are removed from the LEIE. The Medicare and Medicaid Patient and Program Protection Act of 1987, Public Law 100-93, expanded and revised OIG’s administrative sanction authorities by establishing certain additional mandatory and discretionary exclusions for various types of misconduct. The enactment of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Public Law 104-191, in 1996 and the Balanced Budget Act (BBA) of 1997, Public Law 105-33, further expanded OIG’s sanction authorities.
