New York Chiropractor and Practices Agree to 40 Year Exclusion

On December 16, 2016, Alexander Khavash, a chiropractor, and the two chiropractic practices he owned, Alexander Khavash, DC, P.C., and AK Chiropractic, P.C., agreed to be excluded from participation in all Federal health care programs for a period of forty years under 42 U.S.C. § 1320a-7(b)(7).
