Dr. Navneet Sharda and NV Medical Board Reach Settlement
In May 2013, Investigative Committee of the Nevada State Board of Medical Examiners filed a formal complaint charging Dr. Navneet Sharda on two counts.
Dr. Sharda was charged on one count of failure to maintain timely, legible, accurate and complete medical records relating to the diagnosis, treatment and care of a patient. Second count was of malpractice where a physician fails in treating a patient with reasonable care, skill or knowledge ordinarily used under similar circumstances.
The Nevada State Board of Medical Examiners (Board) accepted the Settlement Agreement of Navneet N. Sharda, M.D. finding him guilty of two violations of Nevada Revised Statute as set forth in Count I of both formal Complaints, dismissing the remaining counts of both formal Complaints, ordering that he complete 12 hours of CME regarding the subject of record keeping and/or ethics, ordering that he receive a public reprimand and ordering him to pay the fees and costs in the amount of $3,401.50 within one year of the Board’s acceptance of the Agreement.
In 2012, Dr. Sharda settled a lawsuit with the US Department of Justice. The settlement agreement, effective Sept. 17, 2012, agreed to pay $486,000 to the United States to resolve allegations that from Jan.1 2006, through March 30, 2010, he made improper billings to Medicare. Dr. Sharda allegedly overbilled federal health care insurance programs such as Medicare, TRICARE, and the FEHB, by unbundling the billings for the treatments he provided. The settlement agreement stated that it is neither an admission of liability by Dr. Sharda nor a concession by the United States that its claims are not well founded.
Dr. Sharda is a graduate of University of Utah and completed his residency in Oncology at the University of Wisconsin Hospital, Madison, WI.
