The OMIG may sanction some providers by excluding them from participating in the Medicaid program. These providers are excluded from offering services to Medicaid enrollees and also cannot be paid with Medicaid dollars. Prior to adding new staff members, employers should check to see if prospective employees have been excluded from Medicaid. To make it easier to perform such a check, OMIG set up a dedicated service to check the status of any exclusion.
Anytime a health care organization discovers that it was paid more than it was due, this should be reported to OMIG. Our Self-Disclosure section provides information for health care organizations to complete the recently revamped self-disclosure process.
