Physician Agrees to $630k Settlement of False Claims Allegations

  • June 28, 2024

Jamie P. Loggins, M.D. agreed to pay $629,056.76 to settle allegations that he prescribed orthotic braces that were not medically necessary to individuals with whom he had no valid prescriber-patient relationship, U.S. Attorney for the District of Maine Darcie N. McElwee announced June 21.

Loggins allegedly worked with a telemedicine company to provide telemedicine consultations where he would review prepared intake forms. Frequently, the intake forms included multiple complaints and prescriptions for orthotic braces for each individual beneficiary, the government alleged.

Loggins would allegedly electronically sign these prescriptions, despite there being no valid prescriber-patient relationship and no medical necessity for the claims.

A settlement resolves allegations only and no determination of liability has been made.
