Shreveport Prosthetics, Inc. will pay $1.6 million to resolve claims in an action brought by the company’s former office administrator, Kimberly Throgmorton, under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act.  The company was alleged to have submitted false bills to Medicare by using the supplier number of a different company after its own supplier number was deactivated, and by routinely waiving patient co-payments.  Ms. Throgmorton will receive over $250,000 as a whistleblower reward.  USAO WD LA
