Oregon Physical Therapy Practice and Owner Settle Case Involving False Claims

On March 11, 2016, Dan Ibarra and Northwest Physical Therapy (collectively, NPT), Oregon, entered into a $200,000 settlement agreement and a 3-year integrity agreement with OIG. The settlement agreement resolves allegations that NPT submitted claims to Medicare for payment for direct services rendered by unlicensed employees and also submitted claims for direct, one-on-one services when these services were rendered to multiple patients at the same time. Senior Counsel Nancy Brown represented OIG.
