U.S. Attorney Praises Frohsin & Barger, LLC False Claims Act Qui Tam Practice
Date:4/12/2013

Montgomery, Alabama (PRWEB) April 12, 2013

In a prepared statement announcing his office's first False Claims Act whistleblower settlement, United States Attorney for the Middle District of Alabama George Beck praised Frohsin & Barger attorneys and their client for bringing to light allegations of false claims to Medicare for unnecessary home health services in the case of United States ex rel. McDonald v. Techota, LLC, et al., 11-cv-00366, (MDAL).

“Our office is grateful to the law firm of Frohsin and Barger who represented [the whistleblower] and brought this injustice to our attention,” stated U.S. Attorney Beck. “Our country needs those with knowledge about the fraud and false claims to realize that if they bring these injustices to our attention, we will diligently work to cure the injustice.”

According to the government's press release and court documents, the settlement resolved claims that home health care provider Techota, LLC, "billed Medicare for home health services that were not eligible for reimbursement because the services were not medically reasonable and necessary or were not provided under a valid plan of care."

Pursuant to the settlement documents, Techota, LLC will also enter into a Corporate Integrity Agreement with the Office of Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services in an attempt to prevent future fraud. U.S. Attorney Beck also noted the efforts of Assistant United States Attorney Jim DuBois and Department of Justice trial attorney Natalie Priddy for their work on the case. Frohsin & Barger joins in praising the efforts of attorneys Priddy and DuBois as well as HHS-OIG Special Agent Derrick Jackson and his team for their dedication in pursing the case on behalf of the United States and helping to preserve the integrity of the Medicare program.
