Harker Heights: Local Medical Clinic Settles False Claims Case

HARKER HEIGHTS (March 20, 2013)—Harker Heights family practitioner Dr. Bola Elemuren and her husband and office manager John Ogunmuyiwa, who operate the Family Medicine Clinic, have agreed to pay $430,000 to settle allegations involving the submission of false claims to TRICARE, Medicare and Medicaid programs, U.S. Attorney Robert Pitman announced Wednesday in Waco.

The settlement resolves allegations that from 2003 to 2008 the clinic overcharged TRICARE for certain laboratory tests and from 2008 to 2012 that it billed TRICARE, Medicare, and Medicaid for X-rays taken by “unqualified and improperly trained personnel.” Pitman said.

After the government’s investigation, the defendants agreed to settle the case for $430,000 without litigation, but the settlement agreement is not an admission of liability by Elemuren, Ogunmuyiwa or the clinic, Pitman said.
