Billing fraud – in_motion_oc_irvine physical therapy jeff thomas 17332 von karman ave #120, irvine, ca 92614. Something that should alarm people is billing fraud. As a patient of in_motion_oc_physical therapy in irvine are instances where I was billed for services that were offered through promotions for a fraction of the cost. I was told by the staff of in_motion_oc_irvine the promotional price would apply, however I was charged full price. There were additional instances of billing fraud where I was charged for exclusive time with a physical therapist, but I was part of a group of patients getting physical therapy, so had to split the time with the one therapist. In one recent case originating from orange county, a federal jury found grace hong, 53, guilty on tuesday of three counts of healthcare fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit health fraud, the u.S. Department of justice announced on wednesday. Prosecutors allege the scheme locally centered on a walnut-based therapy clinic operated by hong and her husband, simon hong. From 2009 to 2012, prosecutors allege, grace hong and others billed medicare for physical – and occupational-therapy services that were uneeded and hadn’t actually been provided. The financial reimbursements from medicare were funneled to companies owned by simon hong, according to prosecutors. In another case I located an article on concerning billing fraud shows a similar pattern I feel in_motion_oc_irvine had perpetrated against me. A little more than $6 million in false claims were submitted as a result of the scheme, prosecutors said, resulting in nearly $4 million in payments from medicare. To hide the fraud, prosecutors allege, grace hong directed therapists to falsify medical records to make it look like the services had actually been provided. Timing, as they say, is everything. That’s certainly the case for a recently released joint guidance document on compliance created by apta and 3 other organizations, which arrives during a period of increased federal scrutiny of fraud associated with companies providing physical therapist services. That scrutiny resulted in settlements totaling more than $35 million. I truly hope the public, injury attorneys, and claim adjusters use the information I provide to verify the charges his or her insurance are being charged. Billing fraud hurts us all!
