New York Physical Therapist and Physical Therapy Practice Settle Case Involving False Claims
On November 29, 2017, Lino Chuang and Excellent Choice Physical Therapy, P.C. (collectively, Excellent Choice), a physical therapy practice with locations in Queens and Long Island, New York, entered into a $500,000 settlement agreement and a 3-year integrity agreement with OIG. The settlement agreement resolves allegations that Excellent Choice submitted claims for physical therapy services that were: (1) provided by individuals without the required licensure and qualifications; (2) not properly supervised on-site by a physical therapist; and (3) provided in a group therapy environment when one-on-one contact was required. Senior Counsels David Blank and Michael Torrisi represented OIG.
