University Behavioral Health of El Paso agreed to pay $860,000 to resolve allegations it violated the False Claims Act by submitting false claims to Medicare tainted by the payment of kickbacks to a physician under the guise of a professional services agreement in return for the physician’s referral of patients to the hospital.  Specifically, the physician received payments above fair market value, or for services not rendered, and made improper referrals to the hospital for Medicare-reimbursed services.  DOJ (WDTX)
