Florida Neurologist Excluded for Default

On March 16, 2017, OIG excluded Dr. Sean Orr (Dr. Orr), a Florida neurologist, for defaulting on his payment obligations under a Settlement Agreement (Agreement) with the Department of Justice (DOJ) and OIG. Dr. Orr previously entered into the Agreement for knowingly misdiagnosing certain patients with various neurological disorders, such as multiple sclerosis, which caused claims to be submitted to Federal health care programs for medically unnecessary items and services. The terms of the Agreement provided that Dr. Orr would make an initial upfront payment plus additional payments over a five-year period. On January 23, 2017, DOJ issued a Notice of Default to Dr. Orr. Senior Counsel Karen Glassman represented OIG.
