CA Medical Biller to Pay $4.6M to Settle Fraud Allegations

John Commins, for HealthLeaders Media, September 7, 2011

Attempts by HealthLeaders Media to contact JJ&R on Tuesday afternoon were not successful.

The settlement resolves whistleblower allegations brought by Le Jeanne Harris, a former employee of JJ&R, who will get $774,450.

DOJ said it has used the False Claims Act to recover more than $5.9 billion since January 2009 in cases involving fraud against federal healthcare programs.
