Trumbull, CT, pediatric medical practice agrees to fine for overbilling Medicaid

Hartford Courant, April 7, 2010
A Trumbull, CT-based pediatric medical practice has agreed to pay the federal government $74,644 to settle a complaint that it overbilled Medicaid for services it provided to patients. Pediatric Healthcare Associates, with seven offices in and around Fairfield County, CT, was accused of charging patients for after-hours visits, even though the patient visits took place during normal business hours, U.S. Attorney Nora R. Dannehy said. The payment was the result of a civil settlement between the government and the medical practice.
