Pennsylvania Chiropractor Agrees to 25-Year Exclusion
On December 21, 2015, in connection with the resolution of False Claims Act liability, a Pennsylvania chiropractor agreed to be excluded from participating in Federal health care programs for a period of twenty-five years under 42 U.S.C. § 1320a-7(b)(7). OIG alleged that the chiropractor knowingly submitted or caused to be submitted false or fraudulent claims to Medicare for services rendered as a de facto executive and administrator of a chiropractic center notwithstanding the fact that he was excluded from participating in Federal health care programs. Senior Counsel Katherine Matos and Associate Counsel Kaitlyn Dunn represented OIG.
