New Jersey Physician Agrees to Voluntary Exclusion
On September 27, 2017, in connection with the resolution of his False Claims Act liability, Dr. Dinesh Patel (Dr. Patel), Edison, New Jersey, agreed to be excluded again from participation in all Federal health care programs for a period of five years under 42 U.S.C. § 1320a-7(b)(7). OIG's investigation revealed that despite previously having been excluded from participation in New Jersey Medicaid on March 17, 2012, and excluded from participation in all Federal health care programs on February 20, 2014, Dr. Patel continued to provide administrative and management services to Edison Adult Medical Daycare (EAMD) in violation of the terms of his exclusion. Dr. Patel had a previous ownership interest in EAMD, which he transferred to his wife around the time of his exclusion from New Jersey Medicaid. Senior Counsel David Fuchs represented OIG.
