441 Urgent Care Center Agreed to Pay $165,000 for Allegedly Violating the Civil Monetary Penalties Law by Falsely Certifying to Its Eligibility to Receive CARES Act Provider Relief Funds

On September 9, 2021, 441 Urgent Care Center, LLC (441), Summerfield, Florida, entered into a $165,608.78 settlement agreement with OIG. The settlement agreement resolves allegations that 441 knowingly made, used, or caused to be made a false statement in a document that is required to be submitted in order to directly or indirectly receive or retain funds provided in whole or in part by the Secretary of HHS. Specifically, OIG contends that on April 28, 2020, an employee of 441 attested in the HHS Provider Relief Fund Portal that 441 was eligible to receive a Provider Relief Fund payment because, among other things, its Medicare billing privileges had not been revoked.  However, at the time of attestation, HHS had revoked 441’s Medicare billing privileges. Senior Counsel Michael Torrisi, assisted by Chief Investigator Amber Mahmood, represented OIG.
