Annual Board of Directors Meeting; Sunshine Act, 26310 [2018-12309]

Download as PDF daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES 26310 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 109 / Wednesday, June 6, 2018 / Notices in any federal health care program any individual who has been convicted of a criminal offense ‘‘related to the delivery of an item or service under [42 U.S.C. 1395 et seq.] or under any State health care program.’’ The Agency has long held that the underlying conviction forming the basis for a registrant’s mandatory exclusion from participation in federal health care programs need not involve controlled substances for the Agency to revoke a DEA registration pursuant to § 824(a)(5). E.g., Orlando Ortega–Ortiz, M.D., 70 FR 15122, 15123 (2005); Juan Pillot-Costas, M.D., 69 FR 62084, 62085 (2004); Daniel OrtizVargas, M.D., 69 FR 62095, 62095– 62096 (2004); KK Pharmacy, 64 FR 49507, 49510 (1999); Stanley Dubin, D.D.S., 61 FR 60727, 60728 (1996); Nelson Ramirez-Gonzalez, M.D., 58 FR 52787, 52788 (1993). Here, Registrant was convicted of two counts of felony Health Care Fraud related to billing for services that were not rendered. The Agency has previously held that a mandatory exclusion based on a felony fraud conviction for overbilling warranted revocation of a Registrant’s registration pursuant to 21 U.S.C. 824(a)(5). E.g., Johnnie Melvin Turner, M.D., 67 FR 71203, 71203–71204 (2002) (revocation where mandatory exclusion was based on guilty plea to one felony count of mail fraud ‘‘by billing for services that were not rendered’’); Dubin, 61 FR at 60728 (revocation where mandatory exclusion ‘‘based upon fraudulent billing’’); Ramirez-Gonzalez, 58 FR at 52788 (revocation where mandatory exclusion based on submission of false claims). Moreover, Registrant has failed to come forward with any evidence explaining or mitigating his overbilling conduct or otherwise explaining why his registration should not be revoked, and the record reflects no such evidence. See Joseph M. Piacentile, M.D., 62 FR 35527, 35528 (1997) (revoking DEA registration where Registrant ‘‘did not offer any evidence into the record regarding why his registration should not be revoked’’ pursuant to § 824(a)(5)). Based on the 2017 HHS letter, I find that the evidence shows that HHS excluded Registrant from participation in any federal health care program based on his federal convictions for health care fraud related to overbilling. Registrant has thus been excluded pursuant to the mandatory exclusion provisions of 42 U.S.C. 1320a–7(a), and I hold that this unchallenged basis for his mandatory exclusion is sufficient to warrant revocation of his DEA registration pursuant to 21 U.S.C. 824(a)(5). VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:35 Jun 05, 2018 Jkt 244001 Accordingly, I will order that his registration be revoked and deny any pending applications to renew or to modify his registration, as requested in the Show Cause Order. Order to Show Cause, at 1. Finally, because Registrant’s DATA-Waiver authority is contingent on Registrant being a practitioner with a valid DEA registration, see 21 U.S.C. 823(g)(2)(A); 21 CFR 1301.28(a), I will revoke his DATA-Waiver authority as well. Order Pursuant to the authority vested in me by 21 U.S.C. 823(f) and 824(a), as well as 28 CFR 0.100(b), I order that DEA Certificate of Registration No. BH2140692 and DATA-Waiver Identification Number XH2140692, issued to Richard Hauser, M.D., be, and they hereby are, revoked. I further order that any pending application of Richard Hauser to renew or to modify the above registration, be, and it hereby is, denied. This Order is effective July 6, 2018. Dated: May 25, 2018.
