Q&A: Reporting Exclusions from Federal
and State Health Care Programs

  1. Does an exclusion from participation in a Federal or State health care program have to be in effect for a certain amount of time before it must be reported to the NPDB?

    No. All exclusions of health care practitioners, providers, or suppliers from participation in a Federal or State health care program must be reported to the NPDB within 30 days of the date the action was taken, regardless of the duration of the exclusion.
