Physician and Business Owner Agrees to Voluntary Exclusion

On November 30, 2018, in connection with the resolution of his False Claims Act liability, Zahid Aslam, M.D., a physician with ownership interests in multiple medical practices in Delaware and Maryland, agreed to be excluded from participation in all Federal health care programs for a period of eight years under 42 U.S.C. § 1320a-7(b)(7). OIG alleged that Dr. Aslam improperly submitted claims for: (1) laboratory services that were not medically necessary, did not qualify for payment, and/or were not provided; (2) medical and/or counseling services that listed the wrong rendering provider and/or did not qualify for payment because they were not rendered by an eligible provider; and (3) medical services that listed the wrong Current Procedure Terminology (CPT) code and/or lacked documentation to support the listed CPT code. Senior Counsel Lisa Veigel represented OIG.
