Attorney General Obtains $73,500 Medicaid Recoupment From Michigan Drug Testing Company
A Michigan-based company will pay the State of Vermont in excess of $73,500 to settle claims that it obtained payments from the Vermont Medicaid Program to which it was not entitled, according to Vermont Attorney General William H. Sorrell. The provider, Physicians Toxicology, LLC offers laboratory services to clinicians. The civil settlement resolves an investigation conducted by the Medicaid Fraud and Residential Abuse Unit of the Office of the Attorney General into Medicaid claims for urinalysis drug testing made by Physicians Toxicology. The investigation identified five categories of billing improprieties and errors that resulted in the Vermont Medicaid program making overpayments to the company. Physicians Toxicology cooperated with the investigation.
