Board Member Eligibility: Screenings and Background Checks

April 4, 2019 - 1 pm ET
Training Details

While health centers focus time and attention on meeting the Board composition requirements under Section 330, they may overlook a key step in the Board member recruitment and retention process – conducting appropriate screenings and background checks for Board members. 

Failure to conduct exclusion list screenings of potential and current Board members could result in an individual who is excluded, debarred, suspended, proposed for debarment, or otherwise ineligible for participation in a federal or state health care program serving on the Board. 

Such a situation jeopardizes the continued participation of the health center in the Medicare and Medicaid programs and could affect the health center’s receipt of federal grant funds. Individuals who have been convicted of certain criminal offenses (known as “final adverse legal actions”) and who serve on a health center’s Board can also jeopardize the continued participation of the health center in the Medicare program.
