New Jersey doctor Robert Claude McGrath and his chiropractor son Robert Christopher McGrath admitted to conspiring to defraud Medicare by using unqualified people to give physical therapy to Medicare recipients. Together with their practice, the Atlantic Spine & Joint Institute, they also agreed to pay $1.78 million to resolve allegations they violated the False Claims Act through the illegal billings. The allegations originated in a whistleblower lawsuit filed under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act by Linda Stevens, a former billing manager at Atlantic Spine. She will receive a whistleblower award of roughly $338,200 from the proceeds of the government’s recovery. DOJ (DNJ)
