State v. Mr. K (DMC N. 11324) – Insurance and Medical Billing Fraud – Vacated Suspension of Physical Therapy License at Board Hearing – Arizona Board of Physical Therapy (Complaint No. 12-41): Mr. K worked as a physical therapist and had submitted various medical bills to assisted healthcare services. It was alleged that he billed for some services that he did not actually perform. Once we were involved in the case, we were able to show that his billing practices may have fallen below the standard of ethics, but they were not criminal in nature. This was true, even though they were claiming he had falsified his records.
We were able to get the case dismissed with an agreement to probation. As a condition of probation, Mr. K was required to do classes in continuing education, along with monitoring of his billing submissions. After one year, the probation was lifted and his license was unencumbered. He was allowed to maintain his livelihood throughout the entire course of his probation.
