Florida Radiologist to Pay $7 Million to Resolve Fraud Claims

A board-certified radiologist, Fred Steinberg, M.D., his imaging centers and related entities in Palm Beach County have reached a settlement to resolve allegations of health care fraud.  Steinberg had faced a whistleblower lawsuit brought by former-employee David Clayman, M.D.  Clayman alleged that portions of CT scans were not performed by Steinberg’s imaging centers, even though the procedures were billed and reported to patients’ physicians as if they were done.  The bills were submitted to federal healthcare programs like Medicare.

“Billing Medicare for tests that are either not medically necessary or not performed is an abuse of the Medicare program that squanders scare dollars,” said R. Alexander Acosta, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida.  “We will aggressively prosecute any physicians, including board-certified specialists, who abuse and steal from the Medicare system to line their own pockets.

Dr. Clayman will receive $1.75 million as his share of the recovery in the qui tam lawsuit.
