Question Date: 12.2020

Question: My co-worker said there was an excel sheet somewhere on the DHS website that we need to check before employing someone. Have you heard of this and do you know where this is located? 

Response: Program Integrity maintains the Iowa Medicaid Provider Sanctions list. The list is a current accounting of providers found in violation of the Iowa Medicaid Program.  This list identifies all providers that the Iowa Medicaid Program Integrity Unit has:

  • Terminated, suspended, or placed on probation after administrative appeals have been exhausted
  • All providers that have failed to return an identified overpayment of medical assistance within the time frame specified in Iowa Administrative Code section 249A.39
  • All providers found liable for a false claims law violation related to the medical assistance program under Iowa Code Chapter 685.
