Suit: Pain Clinics Duped Government, Military out of Millions

Federal prosecutors have accused a chain of pain clinics in Tennessee, North Carolina and Virginia of duping the government and the military out of millions of dollars by forcing patients to receive unnecessary injections into their back, then intentionally mislabeling the injections during billing, the Tennessean reports. A lawsuit filed against Franklin-based Pain MD clinics and parent company MedManagement, or MMi, alleges that the MMi company culture pressured medical staff to inject patients as often as possible in an effort to inflate profits.
