Grace and Theophilus Egbujor Excluded for Material Breach of their Corporate Integrity Agreement
Effective January 20, 2021, OIG excluded Grace and Theophilus Egbujor (collectively, “the Egbujors”), for a period of five years based on a material breach of their CIA. On August 4, 2020, OIG issued a Notice of Material Breach and Intent to Exclude letter to the Egbujors after their failure to abide by a Departmental Appeals Board decision affirming the Administrative Law Judge’s order that they pay $1,322,500 in Stipulated Penalties assessed under their CIA. The Stipulated Penalties were assessed as a result of their failure to repay overpayments identified by the Independent Review Organization in the second and third CIA annual reports. The Egbujors failed to respond to the Notice of Material Breach and Intent to Exclude and a Notice of Exclusion was issued to the Egbujors. The Egbujors did not appeal their exclusion, and their exclusions went into effect on January 20, 2021.
