The Office of the Medicaid Inspector General is responsible for preventing fraud, waste, and abuse to the Medicaid program. If OMIG determines that there is good reason why a provider should no longer be eligible to participate in the Medicaid program, they are placed on a list of excluded providers.
Please note that the Department of Human Services maintains the list of excluded providers. That list can be accessed via the following link: https://dhs.arkansas.gov/dhs/portal/Exclusions/PublicSearch/.
Medical providers who are excluded from Arkansas Medicaid must not order, prescribe, or provide services to any clients. Medical providers are liable for all fees paid to them by Arkansas Medicaid for services rendered by excluded individuals and are subject to audits and recoupment of any Medicaid funds paid for services.
Medical providers are responsible for checking the Department of Human Services Excluded Provider List as well as the federal list (located here: https://exclusions.oig.hhs.gov/) upon hiring and periodically thereafter.
