Florida Dermatologist Agrees to Voluntary Exclusion

Effective September 1, 2015, in connection with the resolution of False Claims Act liability, a Florida dermatologist agreed to be excluded from participating in Federal health care programs for a period of five years under 42 U.S.C. § 1320a-7(b)(7). OIG's investigation revealed that the dermatologist submitted claims to Medicare for Mohs surgeries that were not medically necessary or not performed, and claims for adjacent tissue transfers (also known as flaps) that were not medically necessary or not performed. Senior Counsel Karen Glassman represented OIG.
