Puerto Rico Physician Agrees to Voluntary Exclusion
On September 6, 2016, in connection with the resolution of False Claims Act liability, Narciso Reyes Carrillo, MD, agreed to be excluded from participation in all Federal health care programs for a period of five years under 42 U.S.C. § 1320a-7(b)(7). OIG alleged that Dr. Reyes submitted or caused to be submitted false claims under Medicare when he furnished healthcare services to Medicare beneficiaries in a hospital emergency department while he was excluded from participating in Federal healthcare programs. OIG had previously excluded Dr. Reyes in October 2009 for five years for his felony conviction in the U.S. District Court for the District of Puerto Rico. Senior Counsel Sarah Kessler represented OIG.
