Physician to pay $95K to settle kickback allegations

A Washington physician agreed to pay $95,000 to resolve allegations that he participated in a scheme in which he ordered medically unnecessary durable medical equipment for kickbacks. 

Between October 2018 and April 2019, Daniel Case, MD, worked with RediDoc, a company that operated by calling beneficiaries of federal healthcare programs, including Medicare, to speak with them about obtaining durable medical equipment at no cost, according to a Jan. 29 news release from the Justice Department. Physicians involved would review recordings of the calls and sign orders for medical equipment, regardless of whether they were medically necessary, and were paid for each order they signed. Dr. Case was paid approximately $66,727.

The owners of RediDoc were charged with offenses including conspiracy to violate the federal anti-kickback statute, to which they both pleaded guilty, according to the release.
