Texas physician settles false claims allegations

Compliance Monitor, May 7, 2008

Daniel Andrew Maynard, D.O., of Dallas, will pay $253,000 to resolve allegations he submitted improper claims for payment to the Medicare and Texas Medicaid programs between January 1, 1999, and June 10, 2003, according to a Department of Justice (DOJ) press release.
 
Maynard allegedly inflated bills for thousands of physician evaluation and management (E/M) services submitted to the Medicare and Texas Medicaid programs. According to the DOJ, if the claims Maynard submitted for 32 days were accurate, he would have spent more than 24 hours a day seeing and treating patients.
 
As part of the civil settlement, Maynard will be permanently excluded from participation in Medicare, Texas Medicaid, and all other federal healthcare programs.
