Texas Physician Agreed to Voluntary Exclusion
On February 27, 2015, in connection with the resolution of False Claims Act liability, a Texas physician and two companies he operated, a research firm and consulting business, agreed to be excluded from participating in Federal health care programs for a period of three years under 42 U.S.C. § 1320a-7(b)(7).
