Michigan Nurse Practitioner Agrees to Voluntary Exclusion

On May 15, 2015, a Michigan Nurse Practitioner (NP) 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 NP knowingly and willfully referred patients for physical therapy and home health care services billed to Federal health care programs in exchange for illegal kickbacks. Senior Counsel Patrick Garcia represented OIG.
