Vermont Physician and Practice Settle Case Involving Excluded Individual

On July 2, 2018, William H. Newman, M.D., and Allergy & Asthma Specialists of Northern Vermont, P.C. (collectively, "Dr. Newman"), entered into a $61,142.96 settlement agreement with OIG. The settlement agreement resolves allegations that Dr. Newman employed an individual who was excluded from participating in any Federal health care program. OIG's investigation revealed that the excluded individual, a registered nurse, provided items or services to Dr. Newman's patients that were billed to Federal health care programs. OIG's Office of Audit Services, Office of Investigations and Office of Counsel to the Inspector General, represented by Senior Counsel John O'Brien, collaborated to achieve this settlement.
