Medical Sanctions and Debarments

ESR checks Medical Sanctions through a bulk check of Medicaid disbarments that examines the Excluded Parties List System (EPLS) a component of the System for Awards Management (SAM) and the applicable state Medicaid sanctions list, done in large bulk for monthly, quarterly or annual reviews to ensure compliance with all applicable federal and state laws. The Medical Sanctions check is a deep drill down into a large number of names, aimed at limiting the number of potential hits that must be researched further by reviewing all possible identifiers.
