WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Federal prosecutors say a Wichita doctor and his company have agreed to pay $1.5 million to settle allegations of submitting false claims to the Medicare program.
Dr. Roger W. Evans and EECP Heart Center of Kansas Inc. operated several clinics providing so-called enhanced counterpulsation therapy for coronary artery disease.
The government contends that from 2005 through 2009, Evans submitted claims for procedures performed at clinics without his presence or direct supervision as required by Medicare.
As part of the deal announced Monday, Evans and his company do not admit wrongdoing.
