It is my understanding, you will not easily find employment with any agency that accepts Medicare/Medicaid $. There is a requirement to check for placement on the exclusion list prior to hire.

I know, I am trying to think of places for you. Maybe some private adult day cares, private assisted livings, maybe even a veterinarian if you are an animal lover.

Private duty or as a sitter. It would be be a start.

Try doctor office's. There should be specialties that only take private insurance. Maybe weight loss clinics, plastic surgery.

don't bring it up in the initial interview. Wait for them to decline your application.

I am just trying to understand your situation, you were getting welfare when you were not eligible? I know it’s a felony if it’s over $500 in my state( I’ve been in a similar situation) did you hire an attorney to try to reduce the charge or try to get probation and restitution? How long are you in the OIG list?

I really hope you can find work, plastics or medical spa might be a good option!

keep us posted!

I'm not sure about your state, but here in Texas if you are excluded from state Medicaid, you are also now excluded from Medicare. 

I am in the same boat. Keep us posted

See about working in home health as an independent contractor. I work for Giving Home Healthcare and they hired me with a felony for prescription fraud. When I called to ask about the job...or any job I apply for....I tell them about the felony right away. I always include how recovery and consequences made me a better person. My charges were almost 7 years ago though, so I think that helps.
