Q&A: Reporting Federal or State Health Care-Related Criminal Convictions

  1. A health care practitioner pleaded nolo contendere to fraud related to a claim he made on his homeowner's insurance. Should this be reported to the NPDB?

    No. The practitioner's nolo contendere plea should not be reported because it is not related to the delivery of a health care item or service.
