San Diego-based health care system Scripps Health agreed to pay $1.5 million to resolve allegations it violated the False Claims Act by charging federal health care programs for physical therapy services that were rendered by therapists who did not have billing privileges for these programs and were not supervised by an authorized provider. The allegations originated in a whistleblower lawsuit filed under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act by former Scripps employee Suzanne Forrest. She will receive a whistleblower award of $225,000 from the proceeds of the government’s recovery. DOJ
