Georgia outpatient facility ordered to pay $9.6M for submitting hundreds of false claims

A federal judge in Georgia June 2 ordered an outpatient facility to pay more than $9.6 million for submitting hundreds of fraudulent claims to Medicaid and Tricare. 

Macon-based Georgia Family Rehab and its owner Brenda Hicks submitted about 800 claims to Medicare and Tricare under the names of a physical therapist and a speech therapist who were no longer employed at the facility and could not have provided the services in question, according to a June 2 U.S. Justice Department news release.
