Updated LEIE Database

The "Updated LEIE" database file reflects all OIG (Office of Inspector General) exclusion and reinstatement actions up to, and including, those taken in September 2012.  This new, "Updated LEIE" (List of Excluded Individuals and Entities) is a complete database file containing all exclusions currently in effect. Individuals and entities that have been reinstated to the federal health care programs are not included in this file. The new file is meant to replace the "Updated LEIE" file made available for download last month. The new file is complete and need NOT be used in conjunction with the monthly exclusion and reinstatement supplements.

Alternatively providers may wish to download either the August Exclusions or Reinstatements databases which are posted as the "Current Monthly Supplements"

All of these downloadable files are zipped, self-extracting .dbf files, meaning that they will not open automatically when the links are selected. After the files have been downloaded to a computer and inflated, the files must be opened into either a spreadsheet program such as Excel, or a database program such as Access.

Basic download instructions are provided at the bottom of the page where the updated files are posted.

Finally, it should be added, the full LEIE database -- complete with all the monthly updates -- is included in the OIG "Online Searchable Database" which is very user-friendly and may be accessed here.
