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

  1. A chiropractor accepted kickbacks from a medical supply company in exchange for patient referrals. Both the chiropractor and the medical supply company were convicted and each was sentenced to a fine of $20,000. Should both convictions be reported in one report?

    No. Two reports must be submitted. The chiropractor and the medical supply company should each be reported separately for their criminal convictions related to the delivery of health care items or services.
