Seattle Pain Center, Northwest Analytics, and owner/physician Dr. Frank Danger Li have agreed to pay $2.85 million to settle allegations of defrauding Washington’s Medicaid program.  An investigation revealed that between 2013 and 2015, Li had instituted a policy required nearly every patient treated at Seattle Pain Center to be administered the full urine drug panel at each visit even if they were not medically necessary.  The drug tests were then sent to Li’s exclusively-owned laboratory to be analyzed.  Additionally, the investigation revealed that between 2007 and 2016, Li wrote an excessive amount of prescriptions for opioids, and at least 60 of his patients died due to opioid-related causes during this period.  AG WA; USAO WDWA
