Board Certified Obstetrician And Gynecologist Agrees To Civil Fraud Settlement In Conjunction With Deferred Prosecution In Medicare And Medicaid Fraud Investigation
The United States and New York State have entered into a civil settlement agreement with Haroutyoun Margossian, a Board Certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist (OB/GYN). Margossian maintains an OB/GYN subspecialty in urogynecology and is the sole practitioner at NY Urogynecology & Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery, P.C. with a main office located in Brooklyn. The agreement resolves an investigation under the federal False Claims Act and the New York False Claims Act involving allegations that, in contravention of Medicare and Medicaid regulations, Margossian utilized an unlicensed and often unsupervised staff to treat women suffering from urinary incontinence. Under the terms of the civil settlement agreement, Margossian will pay a total of $8,047,291.06. Contemporaneously with the execution of the civil settlement agreement, the government filed a criminal charge against Margossian for making false statements to Medicare and entered into a deferred prosecution agreement with him.
