OPENonline, an industry leading provider of pre-employment background checks and investigative services announces the launch of the Federal OIG/GSA Search: a search that identifies any individuals or entities that have committed fraud against Medicare, Medicaid or any other Federally funded healthcare program. The Federal OIG/GSA Search will be added to OPENonline’s extensive suite of services and offered through their flagship healthcare screening solution: SelectCare.

“We recognize there is a need for this type of service as Medicaid and Medicare fraud are rampant in our society,” said Heather Browning, Executive Vice President of OPENonline. “It is absolutely necessary for healthcare organizations to utilize this search and ensure all federal requirements are met and patients, staff and the organization as a whole remain protected.”

OPENonline’s OIG/GSA Search has the ability to run large groups of employees at one time and provide one concise, detailed, easy-to-read report at minimal cost.
