Mayo Clinic to Pay $1.26M to Resolve False Billing Allegations

Mayo Clinic has agreed to pay $1.26 million to resolve a federal lawsuit claiming it billed the government for surgical pathology services that were never rendered.

David Ketroser, MD, JD, filed the whisteblower suit in 2007, and the Department of Justice intervened in September 2010. The suit claimed Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo knowingly billed Medicare, Medicaid and other federal health programs for the preparation and examination of permanent human-tissue slides that Mayo had never made nor examined.

The settlement reflects a payment of $263,000 that Mayo has already paid the government following a subpoena, as well as an additional $1 million Mayo agreed to pay.
