In a disciplinary order dated May 23, 2022 the Division ordered William R. Francis, Jr., M.D. to pay an administrative penalty of $12,000.00 and attend an Ethics and Boundaries Assessment Services course and workshop. The Division found that Dr. Francis authorized and submitted CMS-1500 billing forms for 6,487 manual  muscle tests (MMT) and functional capacity evaluations (FCE) in which he listed himself as the rendering provider. The Division found, however, that Dr. Francis was neither in the room where the examinations were performed nor did he supervise the technicians performing such examinations.
