1. Office of Inspector General (OIG) Continuous Monitoring

This section needs the provider’s social security, name, and date of birth in order to enroll in OIG continuous monitoring. 

We try to input this for all providers during implementation, however sometimes information such as the provider's social security number is not available. 

When adding a new provider to Silversheet, it is crucial to input this information in the sanctions tab to enable  OIG continuous monitoring.

2. NPDB 

For the NPDB Query you can upload verification as if you were uploading a credential. If you are an accredited facility, best practice is to have the NPDB done within 120 days prior to the appointment date.

What is the difference between the OIG and the NPDB? 

  • The OIG checks for fraud and abuse in Medicare, Medicaid, and other HHS programs.

  • The NPDB is a repository of reports containing information on medical malpractice payments and other adverse actions amongst medical professionals.

To upload an NPDB: 

  1. Go to the Sanctions tab in the provider profile

  2. Click log NPDB query

  3.  Drag and drop or search for file

  4. Input necessary information

  5. Click submit

See screenshot below for reference.  

REMINDER: It is recommended to upload an NPDB 120 days prior to the appointment start date.
