Arizona Pain Management Practice Settles Case Involving Kickback and Stark Allegations

On September 27, 2017, Advanced Pain Management (APM), a pain management practice with multiple locations in Arizona, entered into a $186,210.20 settlement agreement with OIG. As the result of its investigation, OIG alleged that APM received improper remuneration from Millennium Health, LLC f/k/a Millennium Laboratories, Inc. (Millennium), in the form of point of care test cups which resulted in prohibited referrals. OIG further alleged that the referrals were prohibited because the remuneration created a financial relationship and that APM caused Millennium to present claims for designated health services that resulted from the prohibited referrals. Senior Counsels Andrea Treese Berlin and Geoffrey Hymans represented OIG
