Utah Pain Doctor and Medical Practice Settle False and Fraudulent Medicare Claims Case

On July 21, 2017, Jahan Imani, M.D. (Imani), and Intermountain Medical Management, P.C. (IMM), a Utah based pain management specialist and his practice, entered into a $399,895.92 settlement agreement with OIG. The settlement agreement resolves allegations that IMM, through Imani, submitted false or fraudulent claims for payment by inappropriately using modifier 59 for multiple units of HCPCS code G0431 when only a single unit may be billed per patient encounter. OIG's Office of Audit Services and Office of Counsel to the Inspector General, represented by Senior Counsels Andrea Treese Berlin and Geoffrey Hymans, collaborated to achieve this settlement.
