Cardiac Associates, P.C. will pay the United States over $399,000 to settle False Claims Act allegations related to improper billing practices. The U.S. contends that between January 1, 2012, and December 21, 2016, Cardiac Associates double billed for procedures on the same date for the one patient, when only one of the procedures was performed. Cardiac Associates also allegedly billed for two tests when testing patients for venous sufficiency, even though Medicare rules prohibit billing for both CPT 93970, the newer test, and CPT 93965, an older test using different technology.
