A Fraud Abuse Control Information System (FACIS) search gathers information from various federal sources, such as OIG, SAM, FDA, DEA, TRICARE, FBI, U.S. DOJ, U.S. Treasury Dept, and U.S. State Dept, to identify potential matches related to individuals or entities involved in healthcare fraud or abuse.
A FACIS Level 3 search expands this to include state-level sources like State Medicaid Exclusions, State Contractor Disqualification/Debarment Lists, HEAT Task Force News, State Attorney General News, Federal District – Attorney General News, and Medicare/Medicaid Opt-Out Lists.
How does it work?
The search has been added in the criteria builder as a non-integrated check and is fulfilled via ClearStar. This is a restricted check and clients will not see it in their accounts unless we enabled this for them. Each client will need to be onboarded separately for these checks.
