Q&A: Reporting Federal or State Health Care-Related Criminal Convictions

  1. If a health care practitioner is convicted of a health care-related offense, a report must be submitted to the NPDB within 30 days. Does the 30 days begin when the individual is convicted or when the individual is sentenced?

    The report must be submitted within 30 calendar days of the date of the conviction. Federal, state, and local prosecutors must report criminal convictions in federal and state court against health care practitioners, providers, or suppliers related to the delivery of health care items or services. These convictions must be reported regardless of whether the conviction is the subject of a pending appeal.
