Dental Practice Settles Case Involving Excluded Individual
On June 30, 2015, Adam Diasti, D.D.S., P.C. (Diasti), a dental services provider, entered into a $22,319.26 settlement agreement with OIG. The settlement agreement with OIG resolves allegations that Diasti employed an individual who was excluded from participating in any Federal health care programs. OIG's investigation revealed that in two Diasti-affiliated California dental offices, the excluded registered dental assistant provided items and services to patients that were billed to Federal health care programs. Senior Counsel Keshia Thompson represented OIG with the assistance of Paralegal Specialist Jennifer McKoy and Program Support Assistant Tynishia Gardner.
