North Carolina physician Ibrahim Oudeh and his wife Teresa Sloan-Oudeh will pay up to $8.8 million to resolve claims of Medicare and Medicaid fraud.  Between 2010 and 2017, the Oudehs reportedly submitted more than 40,000 false claims, including more than 37,000 claims for laboratory tests, including nerve-conduction studies that Dr. Oudeh was not qualified to interpret, the vast majority of which were medically unnecessary.  To submit as many claims as they did, defendants falsely billed for office visits, in some instances billing for more than 24 hours of visits in a single calendar day.  The Oudehs sometimes used outside physicians to interpret laboratory tests, but paid those physicians less than their practice’s Medicare reimbursement, a violation of the Anti-Markup Rule.  Defendants will forfeit $3.3 million in assets and pay an additional $5.5 million.   USAO EDNC; NC
