Welcome to the Provider Penalty Tracking Database. This database has been created to track providers as required by NC Session Law 2003-294 also known as Senate Bill 926. This database is not a full listing of available providers of services, but only lists providers who have violations that have resulted in penalties or serious administrative actions against their license. This database also includes information concerning Medicaid enrollment restrictions or terminations for licensed and unlicensed providers. Per requirements of Session Law 2003-294, the database also tracks owners, principals, or affiliates of the facilities that meet the law criteria. The types of providers included in this database are listed below.

  • State-licensed and unlicensed providers of group homes
  • Residential child care facilities
  • Child Placing Agencies, Adoption and Family Foster Care (regular as well as therapeutic)
  • Supported living
  • Respite
  • Child care
  • Community-based services or other Medicaid services
  • Other providers with violations that have resulted in the administrative actions noted above

The State agencies listed below establish the criteria for the violations and penalties.

  • The Division of Health Service Regulation (DHSR)
  • The Division of Medical Assistance (DMA)
  • The Division of Social Services (DSS)
  • The Division of Child Development (DCD)
