Maryland AG secures $250,000 settlement with primary care practice for alleged false claims

By Mark Iandolo | Apr 28, 2017

BALTIMORE (Legal Newsline) – Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh announced April 18 that Complete Family Care P.C., a Takoma Park primary care practice owned by Dr. Suresh Khetan and his wife Renu Khetan, paid $250,000 to resolve allegations of fraudulent billing to increase profits.

Over a five-year period, the defendants would purportedly perform simple blood draws and eye tests on patients, yet would bill Medicare for procedures with much higher reimbursement rates, such as complex blood removals and visual examinations.

Handling the case for Maryland was the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit, specifically Assistant Attorney General Raja Mishra, investigators Melinda FitzGerald and Julia Foster, and auditor Oludolapo Osikomaiya. The Department of Health and Mental Hygiene Office of the Inspector General also assisted.
