OIG Excluded Shreveport Prosthetics for Material Breach of their Integrity Agreement
On September 1, 2021, OIG excluded Shreveport Prosthetics, Inc. (Shreveport), for a period of three years based on a material breach of their Integrity Agreement (IA). OIG determined Shreveport to be in material breach of its IA when Shreveport failed to engage an Independent Review Organization to perform quarterly claims reviews. OIG issued a notice of material breach and intent to exclude on May 24, 2021. On August 2, 2021, OIG sent Shreveport an exclusion letter. Under the terms of the IA, Shreveport had 25 days to request a hearing with an Administrative Law Judge. Shreveport did not request a hearing, and the exclusion went into effect on September 1, 2021.
