Federal prosecutors say they want Doctors and Pain Clinics in Middle Tennessee to reimburse the government for filing allegedly false insurance claims amounting to hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Those named in the federal and state civil lawsuit filed in Nashville include Manchester Doctor David Florence. Doctors and Pain Clinics in McMinnville, Grundy County, Cookeville and Lenior City are also named in the action. The government says defendants mis-coded medical benefit payments and overcharged Medicare and Tenncare over a period of several years.
Florence tells WFTZ News he’s innocent of the allegations, and has no knowledge of billing irregularities. He says the action doesn’t threaten his practice and has no criminal implication.
