A $4 million settlement was reached in a Medicare fraud lawsuit under the False Claims Act.
Here are the key details to know:
1. The suit alleged that Robert A. Norman, DO, and Carol Norman of Dermatology Healthcare falsely billed Medicare and Medicaid for complex radiation treatments.
2. The practice's website included an image of a linear accelerator, which was a piece of equipment the practice didn't have. However, the practice was still billing Medicare and Medicaid for services delivered by a linear accelerator.
3. The complaint alleged the practice used a superficial radiation machine instead.
