Dr. James Norman, the owner and operator of Norman Parathyroid Center, agreed to pay $4 million to resolve allegations he violated the False Claims Act by billing Medicare for pre-operative examination services for which he had already received payment from the government.  These extra fees ranged from $150 to $750 for Florida residents, to $1,750 or more for patients who lived out-of-state, adding up to hundreds of thousands of dollars in illicit billing.  The allegations originated in a whistleblower lawsuit filed under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act by a former patient of Dr. Norman, Myra Gross, and her husband, Dr. David Gross.  They will receive a whistleblower award of roughly $600,000 from the proceeds of the government’s recovery.  DOJ (MDFL)
