According to a recent Justice Department press release, a company named EndoGastric Solutions, who manufactures and sells a device called EsophyX that is intended to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease was charged with overbilling the government. The device was allegedly developed as an alternative to a more invasive procedure that requires incisions in the abdomen. The government alleged that EndoGastric Solutions knowingly caused health care providers to bill for the less invasive EsophyX procedure using codes applicable to the more invasive procedure, which provided for a higher level of reimbursement. As a result, federal health care programs allegedly paid more than they should have for the procedures using EsophyX.
The government also alleged that EndoGastric Solutions knowingly paid illegal compensation to certain physicians for participating in patient seminars and co-marketing agreements to induce them to use EsophyX, which was in violation of the Federal Anti-Kickback Statute.
