Busting 7 Myths About Background Screening
Think you know all there is to know about the background check world? Let’s bust a few myths.
Prevent bad actors from slipping past your basic background check. Sanctions searches go a step further: seeking out high-profile offenders like drug traffickers, sanctioned healthcare professionals, and those barred from conducting business in the United States.
Verified Watch List
Reveal whether your candidate is listed on any government watchlists. This FCRA-compliant search cross-references with sources like the DEA, FBI, OFAC, OIG, and Interpol. To ensure the most accurate results possible, we only report matches that are verified directly with the source.
FACIS® Level 3
One of the most important searches available for healthcare, the Fraud and Control Information System (FACIS®) contains records about adverse action against those sanctioned in the healthcare field. Discover information on disciplinary actions like exclusions, debarments, letters of reprimand, and probation.
Office of the Inspector General (OIG)
Need to know if your candidate is barred from participating in any federally funded healthcare programs? The OIG’s List of Excluded Individuals and Entities is the search for you.
Government Services Administration (GSA)
Determine if your candidate has been excluded from receiving federal contracts, certain subcontracts, and assistance or benefits from the U.S. government.
Office of Foreign Asset and Control (OFAC)

Often used as a jumping off point for criminal searches, the SSN Trace reveals alternate names and addresses used by your candidate so you can be sure you’re getting a full picture of their criminal history.
SSN Trace Plus
Go a step beyond the SSN Trace. Starting with the data captured in the standard SSN Trace, this search also looks for known arrests so we can search places where your candidate may have been arrested or convicted outside of where they live (on vacation, for example).
Form I-9 and E-Verify
One of the most important new-hire forms you manage, Form I-9 and E-Verify confirm that your candidate can legally work in the United States. Mistakes on these forms can rack up heavy fines, so our electronic system aids in proper documentation, storage, and remediation efforts.
Social Security Administration Verification (SSA)
Verify the social security numbers of your entire workforce on a regular basis if you’re not legally required to process E-Verify on your new employees. This post-hire service allows for mass upload and reports on any individuals whose wage reporting information doesn’t match the SSA’s records.
