For more than five years, we have been constructing the largest healthcare data bank in the nation. We have gathered sanctioned, excluded, disbarred, terminated and disciplinary actions from Federal and State sources from coast to coast. This information is then continuously updated to assure you the most complete and accurate Medicaid/ Medicare integrity checks available.

As a result of the passage of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 and the Balanced Budget Act (BBA) of 1997, more power has been given to the Office of Inspector General (OIG) of the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) to increase enforcement efforts to uncover fraud and abuse in the Medicare /Medicaid Programs. Guidelines have been issued by the OIG requiring sanctions and monetary penalties where excluded or sanctioned employees or entities are uncovered in the healthcare industry, when Federal dollars are involved either directly or indirectly with patient care.

These new enforcement tools given to the OIG expands the number of programs over which OIG has direct enforcement authority. Therefore, it will be incumbent upon providers, suppliers and others involved with Federal healthcare programs to be aware of OIG's new enforcement tools and operate in a manner that minimizes the risk that they will be subject to these new enforcement efforts.

When violations are found, the penalties normally require, as part of a Corporate Integrity Agreement, annual Medicaid/Medicare integrity checks of all employees, physicians with staff privileges, contractors and suppliers. Many legal experts in the healthcare field advise their clients to perform these annual checks voluntarily, as a sign of  "good faith" efforts on their part to help stem the tide of Medicaid/Medicare fraud and abuse.

As a service to the healthcare industry, the National Healthcare Data Bank was formed to help organizations and groups accomplish this compliance goal.

Hospitals, Physician Groups, Pharmacies, Assisted Living Centers, Healthcare Organizations and all Medicaid/Medicare Providers and Suppliers need the NHDB.

The National Healthcare Data Bank (NHDB) is a private entity and not affiliated with nor reports information from the federally-operated NPDB.
