Marshfield Medical, Inc. (formerly known as Bromedicon, Inc.) agreed to pay $550,000 to settle claims it violated the False Claims Act for submitting claims to Medicare and other federal health care programs without providing a qualified interpreting physician to monitor each surgery for which it purportedly provided remote Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring. According to the government, in some of those cases, no one monitored the data stream from the surgeries and in others, Bromedicon’s medical director, a foreign medical school graduate with no license to practice medicine in the United States, was the only monitor. The allegations originated in a whistleblower lawsuit filed under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act.  DOJ (EDPA)
