LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville eye care center will pay more than $150,000 to settle accusations of false Medicare and Medicaid billing.
Owner of the Conrad Eye Centers in Louisville, Doctor Tim Conrad, owner has voluntarily agreed to pay $157, 060.24 to settle allegations that he submitted, or caused to be submitted, false claims for payment to the Medicare and Medicaid programs in violation of the Federal False Claims Act.
According to a release from Public Affairs Officer Stephanie Collins with the U.S. Attorney's Office, "An evaluation and consultation when, in fact, these patients were never referred to Conrad for a consultation. The agreement further alleges that Conrad billed Medicare and Medicaid for pachymetry testing when, in fact, this test was never performed on patients, and that Conrad billed Medicare and Medicaid for color vision examinations when Conrad did not have the proper equipment to perform these tests on his patients, and in fact, did not perform said tests on his patients."
The over-billing covered a four year period between April 2006 and March 2010.
