Michigan Physician Agrees to Voluntary Exclusion

On May 29, 2015, in connection with the resolution of False Claims Act liability, a Michigan physician specializing in physical medicine and pain management agreed to be excluded from participating in Federal health care programs for a period of three years under 42 U.S.C. § 1320a-7(b)(7). OIG's investigation revealed that the physician caused the submission of false claims to Medicare and Medicaid for physical therapy, electrodiagnostic testing, and/or home health care services that the physician referred in exchange for illegal remuneration or kickbacks. Senior Counsel Patrick Garcia represented OIG.
