National Background Check Program for Long-Term Care Providers: An Interim Assessment of Idaho and Mississippi
Section 6201 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) established the framework for the National Background Check Program. This program, administered by CMS, provides grants to States to implement background check programs for prospective employees and providers of long-term care services. The ACA requires OIG to evaluate this grant program after its completion (P.L. No. 111-148§6201(a)(7)). For continuing participants Idaho and Mississippi, we will review the implementation of Program requirements for conducting background checks on prospective employees of long-term care facilities and providers who would have direct access to patients. We will determine the costs associated with each State program and determine the checks conducted during the Program.
