Pharmacist owners, managers and supervisors are reminded that they should utilize Web sites provided by General Services Administration
(GSA) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
to determine if an employee or contracted individual/entity is excluded from participating in any federally funded program. This includes Medicare, Medicaid and all other plans and programs that provide health benefits funded directly or indirectly by the federal government (other than the Federal Employees Health Benefits Plan). Reasons for exclusion include convictions for program-related fraud and patient abuse, licensing board actions and default on Health Education Assistance Loans.
The Web sites are provided as a public service for the purpose of efficiently and conveniently disseminating information on parties that are excluded from receiving Federal contracts, certain subcontracts, and certain Federal financial and nonfinancial assistance and benefits, pursuant to the provisions of 31 U.S.C. 6101, note, E.O. 12549, E.O. 12689, 48 CFR 9.404, and each agency’s codification of the Common Rule for Nonprocurement suspension and debarment.
