Billing for services at physician rates when they were actually provided by nurses or physician assistants.
Improperly paying or soliciting money to induce referring patients or healthcare services payable by a government-funded healthcare program.
Falsifying Information Regarding Clinic/ Provider Accreditation
Submitting false information to become an eligible provider for government insurance programs.
Referring government business to another business owned by the same person, or by their friends or family.
Promoting off-label use of products, falsifying documentation to the FDA, or deviating from approved manufacturing and testing processes.
