Federal Health Care Program Eligibility
Please note that all offers of employment are contingent upon an applicant being determined to be eligible to participate in Federal Health Care programs. An “ineligible person” is defined as any individual or entity who:
- is currently excluded, suspended, debarred, or otherwise ineligible to participate in the Federal Health Care programs such as Medicare, Medicaid and Champus; or
- has been convicted of a criminal offense related to the provision of health care items or services and has not been reinstated in the Federal Health Care programs after a period of exclusion, suspension, debarment, or ineligibility.
Screening of an applicant to determine eligibility for employment may include inquiries to entities such as the General Service Administration’s List of Parties Excluded from Federal Programs, the Health and Human Services/Office of the Inspector General’s List of Excluded Individuals/Entities, the National Practitioner Databank, and the Healthcare Integrity and Protection Data Bank.
UAMS has a Drug Testing Policy in place. Prior to beginning work, you may be required to submit to a pre-employment screening and/or random drug screening during your employment period at our expense.
