Health Services to Pay $3.818 Million to Settle False Claims Act Allegations for Double-Charging and Mischarging Medical Services on Internal Revenue Service Contract

Comprehensive Health Services, Inc. has agreed to pay the United States $3,818,881 to settle allegations under the False Claims Act that it submitted false claims to the United States by double-billing and mischarging for medical services in connection with work performed on an Internal Revenue Service contract. The settlement agreement resolves allegations that from April 2009 through April 2014, CHSi knowingly double-charged the United States for vision screenings, resting electrocardiograms, and for the collection of blood specimens provided to IRS agents when those costs were already included in the bundled price for the IRS new applicant pre-placement exam. The civil settlement also disposes of the allegation that CHSi charged the United States for annual full physical exams for IRS agents despite the IRS specification that the exam was to be administered only if it was determined to have been medically indicated and no such determination occurred and the exams were never actually performed. The civil settlement resolves a lawsuit filed by James J. Kerr, Jr. under the whistleblower provision of the False Claims Act in United States ex rel. James J. Kerr, Jr. v. Comprehensive Health Services, Inc., Civ. No. RDB-14-1769 (D.Md.). The Act permits private parties to file suit on behalf of the United States for false claims and obtain a portion of the United States' recovery. As part of the civil resolution, Mr. Kerr will receive approximately $645,391. The claims resolved by this settlement are allegations; there has been no determination of liability and CHSi cooperated in the investigation.
