A self-report by a provider to both the federal OIG and Texas OIG led to a successful collaboration between the agencies to achieve a settlement agreement for $7,000,000.
Under the agreement executed in May, Texas will receive $1,400,000 to be paid semi-annually over seven years. The remaining amount will be collected by the federal government.
The provider from Gaines County self-reported improperly paying physicians more than the fair market value for their services in violation of the federal Anti-Kickback Statute.
