MD2U Holding Company agreed to pay $3.3 million and a percentage of its net income over the next five years to settle charges they violated the False Claims Act by submitting false medical claims to Medicare and other government health care programs, altering records to support false claims and providing services that were medically unnecessary. Specifically, the government alleged MD2U submitted false billings for patients who were neither homebound nor home-limited; improperly billed the government for medically unnecessary visits; billed government health care programs at the highest payment codes (upcoding) when a lower code would have been more appropriate; and cloned medical records (a cut, copy, paste electronic program) in order to justify patient visits. The company admitted being liable to the government for roughly $21.5 million. DOJ
