Mori, Bean and Brookes, P.A. (MBB), a Florida-based radiology practice, has agreed to pay $1.4 million to resolve allegations of violating the False Claims Act.  In a qui tam suit by Thomas Heyck, a radiologist formerly employed at MBB, the practice improperly billed Medicare and Medicaid for radiological images that were interpreted outside the U.S., which are not eligible for reimbursement.  MBB also submitted claims for images that were initially interpreted overseas, then reinterpreted and billed to a domestic radiologist.  For blowing the whistle, Heyck will receive a 19% relator’s share.  USAO MDFL
