Bay Sleep Clinic – Medicare Fraud/Unapproved Facilities, Unlicensed Technicians, and Physician Kickbacks ($2.6M).

Posted  December 28, 2016

Constantine Cannon represented whistleblower Elma Dresser, a sleep technician and former Bay Sleep employee. Ms. Dresser alleged that Bay Sleep Clinic and associated businesses, a network of sleep clinics in the San Francisco Bay Area, fraudulently billed Medicare for sleep studies conducted by unlicensed technicians in unapproved locations; improperly dispensed durable medical equipment from unapproved locations using unlicensed technicians; and paid doctors for referrals in violation of the federal Anti-Kickback Statute. The government joined a portion of the case, and in 2016, defendants agreed to pay $2.6 million to settle the matter. For her significant contributions, the relator’s share award was almost 21% of the government’s recovery. See DOJ for more.
