Wynne Physical Therapy Inc.

Providence, RI: (Jul-02-07) The US Department of Health and Human Services' Office of the Inspector General filed charges against William H. Wynne, a physical therapist who had offices in East Providence and Warwick, alleging that he submitted claims to Medicare that resulted in payments of $696,313 to his Wynne Physical Therapy Inc. A federal audit allegedly found that some of those claims had been "upcoded" (billed at a higher payment code than was justified) and some were for procedures that were medically unnecessary. The report stated that though Wynne billed for treatments lasting 30 to 60 minutes, his actual time with patients was only 10 to 20 minutes. The investigation also allegedly found that several claims he submitted were for addresses that had not registered on the GPS device. In a settlement reached, Wynne agreed to pay the US government $100,000 to settle charges of Medicare fraud. [PROVIDENCE BUSINESS NEWS: MEDICARE FRAUD]
