OIG Alert on Physician Reassignment
By Michael R. Burke, Esq.

February, 2012, the Office of Inspector General for the Department of Health and Human Services ("OIG") issued an "OIG Alert" designed to alert physicians to exercise caution when reassigning their Medicare payments to individuals or entities that submit claims to Medicare on the behalf of said physicians. The OIG Alert resulted from settlements recently reached by the OIG with eight physicians who violated the Civil Monetary Penalties Law by causing the submission of false claims to Medicare from physical medicine companies.
