(St. Louis) The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Missouri and the Missouri Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit have announced the United States and Millennium Health reached a civil settlement that will resolve the United States and the State’s claims Millennium received overpayments from Medicare and Missouri Medicaid.
According to the United States and the State’s allegations, from September 1st of 2015 through April 14th of 2017, Millennium submitted claims for payment to Medicare and Missouri Medicaid for urine drug testing it performed based on requisitions completed by Southeast Missouri Behavioral Health, identifying Dr. Perry Bramhall as the ordering physician.
However, the urine drug testing requested was not ordered by Dr. Bramhall and, as a result, Millennium received overpayments from Medicare and Missouri Medicaid.
As part of the civil settlement, Millennium will repay $1,557,500.
Southeast Missouri Behavioral Health has locations in Park Hills, Potosi and Farmington.
