JUST IN: CA Doctor Settles FCA Allegations for $23.9 Million

A plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, along with his son, and medical practices and billing company, have agreed to pay $23.9 million to resolve allegations that they violated the False Claims Act by submitting or causing the submission of false claims to both Medicare and Medicaid.

The civil settlement includes the resolution of claims brought under the qui tam, or whistleblower, provisions of the False Claims Act by parties who worked for the plastic surgeon (Dr. Aronowitz) and his associated medical practices and businesses. Whistleblowers include TDP, a billing company; Dr. Jason Morris, a podiatrist; and Harold Bautista, a billing department employee. Under the qui tam provisions, a private party can file an action on behalf of the government and receive a portion of any recovery.
