An Office of Inspector General (OIG) exclusion has national scope, and is important to many institutional health care providers because the Congress of the United States established a Civil Monetary Penalty for institutions that knowingly hire excluded parties. Accordingly, the OIG maintains the List of Excluded Individuals/Entities (LEIE), a database which provides information to the public, health care providers, patients, and others, which relates to parties excluded from participation in the Medicare, Medicaid and all Federal health care programs.

The Downloadable LEIE Database

You may download the LEIE database to a personal computer and establish an independent database or combine the file with existing data.

Supplimentary exclusion and reinstatement data files are posted on the Web site on a monthly basis for users who wish to supplement their database. A continuously updated file is available for those who do not wish to rely on the supplements.

Note: the downloadable database file does not contain SSNs or EINs. Therefore, verification of specific individuals or businesses through the use of the SSN or EIN must be done with the Online Searchable Database.
