A doctor of osteopathic medicine who practices in Manchester has agreed to pay $124,110 to resolve allegations that he submitted false claims to Medicare.

Acting U.S. Attorney Richard W. Murphy issued a statement Monday that said Douglas J. Jorgensen entered into the civil agreement with federal authorities Monday. Murphy said the alleged health care fraud occurred between January 2011 and August 2014.

The civil complaint accused Jorgensen of violating the federal False Claims Act by submitting claims for certain evaluation and management services that were not eligible under Medicare. Jorgensen submitted the claims knowing, deliberately ignoring or recklessly disregarding that they were false, Murphy said in the statement.

The case was investigated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Inspector General.
