Got a letter from NPDB and am wondering how many people have gotten this. More specifically...does this mean that the OIG list is inevitably coming too? I am not on there yet but i just got my NPDB report for a misdeameanor drug posession and obtaining a narcotic by fraud. If i do end up on there can i get off of it while still on probation? I know its up to them on the length for any misdeameanor. Or should i just calm down and stop assuming the worst. Lol

from what I understand, being on the OIG guarantees you a place in the NPDB but the inverse does not always apply. the OIG related to Medicaid/Medicare fraud and signifies that you can not participate in those programs. the NPDB includes people who have messed up in some fashion and have it on record as a red flag. you can get of the NPDB for things like malpractice , professional competence, HIPAA violation, or fraud. you certainly could end up on the oig list, but npdb doesnt mean it's for sure..

I am on the NPDB, I believe I will remain there until the 'conditions' on my license are satisfied. I am not on the OIG list. I think OIG happens when you are charged with Medicare/Medicaid fraud, OR fail to comply with conditions placed on your license, OR have your license suspended or revoked.
