Florida Laboratory Agrees to Voluntary Exclusion

On October 19, 2017, in connection with the resolution of its False Claims Act liability, Total Lab Care, LLC (Total Lab Care), Jacksonville, Florida, agreed to be permanently excluded from participation in all Federal health care programs under 42 U.S.C. § 1320a-7(b)(7). OIG's investigation revealed that Total Lab Care knowingly billed Federal health care programs for urine toxicology samples that were not reimbursable. Specifically, OIG alleged that Total Lab Care sought reimbursement for urine toxicology samples referred by a physician whom Total Lab Care paid improper financial remuneration. Senior Counsel Felicia Heimer represented OIG.
