ANTI-KICKBACK

Health Care CEO Charged with Paying Kickbacks to Pill Mill Doctor

Case: The former owner and CEO of Alabama chronic care management provider MyPractice24, Inc. has been indicted for an alleged kickback scam involving what has become Public Enemy Number One: abuses involving opioid drugs. The feds claim the CEO offered not only cash bribes but also free chronic care management and medical billing services to a Montgomery physician and his staff for referring patients to MyPractice24. The CEO also allegedly waived Medicare co-pays to recruit patients to enroll in its chronic care management program.

Significance: The physician who allegedly took this bundle of freebies from MyPractice24 has since pleaded guilty to illegal drug distribution, health care fraud and money laundering. And once one domino falls, others typically follow. Thus, it seems highly likely that once they are done with the CEO, the prosecutors will focus on lower level staff managers within both MyPractice24 and the Montgomery practice.
