Takoma Park Primary Care Practice Billed for Expensive Procedures but Only Performed Simple Tests
(BALTIMORE, Md.) - Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh announced Tuesday that Complete Family Care, P.C., a Takoma Park primary care practice owned by Suresh Khetan, M.D. and his wife Renu Khetan, paid $250,000 to the State of Maryland to resolve allegations that the practice engaged in a fraudulent billing scheme to increase profits.

The settlement stems from an investigation which found that, over a five-year period, Complete Family Care routinely billed Medicaid for complex blood removals and eye examinations with high reimbursement rates while actually performing only simple blood draws and eye tests with far lower reimbursement rates.

Attorney General Frosh thanked the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit for their work on this case, specifically Assistant Attorney General Raja Mishra, Investigators Melinda FitzGerald and Julia Foster, and Auditor Oludolapo Osikomaiya. Attorney General Frosh also thanked the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene Office of the Inspector General for its assistance.
