Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Operator Agrees to Voluntary Exclusion
On August 6, 2018, in connection with the resolution of his False Claims Act liability, Scott Warantz (Warantz), New York, agreed to be excluded from participation in all Federal health care programs for a period of five years under 42 U.S.C. § 1320a-7(b)(7). OIG alleged Warantz improperly submitted or caused to be submitted claims for hyperbaric oxygen therapy purportedly supervised by a physician even though the physician was not providing supervision at that facility and was instead performing services at an unrelated facility in New Jersey. Associate Counsel Srishti Sheffner represented OIG.
