What Happens in Vegas May Not Stay in Vegas

The Department of Justice announced on June 30, 2011 that a Las Vegas physician, Rakesh Nathu, settled False Claims Act allegations with the United States for $5.7 million plus interest. Nathu allegedly submitted false claims to Medicare, TRICARE and the Federal Employees Health Benefits Plan for various radiation oncology services from 2007 to 2009. Allegations against Nathu included double billing, billing for more expensive services when less expensive services were appropriate, and billing for medically unnecessary services.

The settlement resulted from a coordinated effort among the Justice Department’s Civil Division, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, and the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Inspector General and signifies the government’s emphasis on combating health care fraud.
