TennCare Requires Monthly Excluded Parties Checks

The Bureau of TennCare now requires providers and contractors to conduct monthly searches to ensure that none of their employees or subcontractors are excluded from participation in Federal health care programs.  In conducting these monthly searches, providers should be aware that employees and/or subcontractors may be excluded under a prior name; therefore, providers are well-advised to conduct excluded party searches under all prior names that surface under a background check.
