Physician Alliance Ltd. and Richard Frey, D.O. will pay $178,400 to resolve allegations that they submitted false claims to Medicare.  When defendants provided patients with “P-Stim” devices, which are worn on a patient’s ear and marketed as an acupuncture treatment, they billed Medicare for the implantation of neurostimulator electrodes, which is a surgical procedure for which Medicare reimburses thousands of dollars.  By contrast, Medicare does not reimburse for acupuncture or acupuncture devices.  USAO EDPA
