Actions include information on disciplinary actions ranging from exclusions and debarments to letters of reprimand and probation. This check is ideal for doctors, nurses, students on clinical placement and other trained medical staff.

There are 3 levels of check available:

  • Level 1: We search the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) and General Services Administration (GSA) and other federal sources. This search meets the US government’s minimum requirements as outlined in the OIG’s Compliance Program Guidance.
  • Level 2: We search OIG/GSA and other federal sources, in addition to sources from an individual state of your choice. This search meets the minimum federal requirements and provides limited state-licensure protection.
  • Level 3: We search OIG/GSA and other federal sources, in addition to over 800 sources from all 50 US states. While this search exceeds minimum federal requirements, it offers full coverage for a high-level risk management policy.
