Joseph P. Galichia, M.D. and his practice group have agreed to pay the United States $1.3 million to settle claims that they violated the False Claims Act by submitting false claims to Medicare, the Justice Department announced.
The government alleged that claims were submitted for services not provided or
were submitted without proper documentation.
In May 2000, Galichia agreed to pay more than $1.5 million to settle a previous False Claims Act matter.
