Dr. Augusto Castrillon of Texas has agreed to pay $2 million to settle allegations he fraudulently billed Medicare for medically unnecessary diagnostic tests in violation of the federal False Claims Act.  From 2009 to 2015, the owner and operator of Castrillon Family Clinic allegedly submitted false claims for transcranial doppler imaging studies, electromyography, nerve conduction studies, and autonomic function testing that were ordered for the same patients on a recurring basis.  The claims submitted by Dr. Castrillion were so excessive that they stood out as a significant statistical outlier in a proactive review of claims data by the U.S. Attorney’s Office.  USAO SDTX
