Drayer Physical Therapy Institute, LLC , with locations in in South Carolina and 14 other states, agreed to pay $7 million to settle charges of violating the False Claims Act by providing services to multiple patients simultaneously as though the services were being provided by a physical therapist or physical therapist assistant to one patient at a time.  The allegations originated in a whistleblower lawsuit filed by two former employees of Drayer under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act.  They will receive a whistleblower award of roughly $1.7 million from the proceeds of the government’s recovery.  DOJ (DSC)
