HELP! I just learned that I've been on the OIG Exclusion list since Jan 2003 following my RN license surrender / revocation for narcotic diversion in 2002. I've successfully gotten my life in order, clean & sober since. I was hired by a large private medical practice in 2002 in their business office. I was completely honest with the HR and Administrative staff about my license surrender. Over the past 12 1/2 years with this company, I've had several roles and promotions. I have never falsified any documentation pretending to still be a registered nurse. 2 years ago I was promoted into a Administrative role over the Practice's Revenue Cycle / Billing. The Practice frequently checks the OIG Exclusion list & I've never "popped up". I never even imagined I would be on this list. A governmental payer called me this week to tell me I was on the OIG Excluison list. When I searched my own name "no results" were found. When I searched again with just a few letters - there I was with my name misspelled! I immediately called my boss and Compliance Officer and told them what I had found out. They put me on a one week suspension with pay "while they sort it out"...but I'm very afraid I will lose the job that I have worked so hard -and great at - for the last 12 years.Does anyone have any suggestions??? Please help I'm very scared.
