Florida Pain Medicine Associates, Inc. and its owners, Drs. Bart Gatz, Alexis Renta, and Albert Rodriguez, agreed to pay $1.1 million to resolve allegations they violated the False Claims Act by billing Medicare for medically unnecessary nerve conduction studies. The allegations originated in a whistleblower lawsuit filed under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act by Rosa Gomez, who had worked in Florida Pain Medicine’s billing department. She will receive a whistleblower award of $242,000 from the proceeds of the government’s recovery. DOJ (SDFL)
