Physician Sentenced for False Billing

February 14, 2019

A physician at the now-defunct New England Pain Management Associates Inc. was sentenced to 75 months in prison plus supervised release and over $1.8 million in restitution for conspiring to falsify patient medical records in order to obtain payments from Medicare and commercial insurers for medical services that were not performed. Part of the conspiracy involved descriptions of extensive physical examinations and treatment plans and durations of face-to-face interactions with patients exceeding 20 to 40 minutes per appointment; this created the appearance of lengthy and involved patient encounters when these services did not take place.
