Any person or entity is prohibited from participation in Medicaid if excluded, to include: employment directly or indirectly, contracting, or ownership. Doing so while excluded is violation and is considered a crime under LA R.S. 14:126.3.1 (2009). Although the stated period of time for the exclusion may have passed, this does not imply reinstatement. After the exclusion period has ended the excluded party may submit a written application for reinstatement. Resumption of participation in the Medicaid Program following exclusion is neither automatic nor a right. Applications for reinstatement will be reviewed by the state and given fair and impartial consideration. La.-R.S. 46:437.13 (C) (2008).
Providers that are terminated for cause are prohibited from participation for a minimum of 90 of days from the effective date. Once the minimum period has elapsed, the provider must re-enroll. Resumption of participation in the Medicaid Program following a termination for cause is neither automatic nor a right.
Employers must use the DSW registry to determine if there is a finding that a prospective hire has abused or neglected an individual being supported, or misappropriated the individual’s property or funds. If there is such a finding on the registry, the prospective employee shall not be hired.
The provider shall check the registry every six months to determine if any currently employed direct service worker or trainee has been placed on the registry with a finding that he/she has abused or neglected an individual being supported or misappropriated the individual’s property or funds.
