With a little digging, you can quickly learn that the $4 million pay out did go to an individual who has a valid NPI. The gentleman also has a valid license to practice as a physical therapist AND the number on his license matches the NPI number.
His numbers are SO huge… he’s got to have a fantastically LARGE facility and an even larger parking lot right?
Guess again, folks….
Although I can’t tell the square footage of the facility, I do know that based on his numbers from 2012, that parking lot should be packed! 8 evals a day plus all the units that had to be billed in a day would mean lots of cars at any given period of time. Hmm, unless of course his clientele walked to the clinic… Doubtful. With $4 million he could make the place look much better than the dump I see in this image!
I’ll be contacting someone tomorrow on this issue. Who should I contact: OIG? FBI? Medicare fraud hotline?
Until next time,
