Skyline Urology will pay $1.85 million to resolve allegations under the federal False Claims Act that it improperly billed Medicare for evaluation and management (E&M) services that did not meet the criteria for separate billing.  Skyline allegedly used “Modifier 25” to unbundle its E&M billing even when the E&M services were provided on the same day as other billed medical services and were not significant, separately identifiable, and beyond those ordinarily involved with the associated procedure.  A whistleblower, James M. Cesare, filed a qui tam complaint, and will receive a relator’s share of approximately $323,750DOJ
