A pain management conglomerate with clinics in Tennessee, North Carolina and South Carolina that was raided late last year by the FBI is now facing several lawsuits, The Charlotte Observer reports. Investigators say that the Pain Management Associates of the Carolinas liberally dispensed unnecessary opioids to patients without proper evaluation, with a former employee going further, accusing the company of completing the evaluations as a “mere formality” and that it would see patients for just a couple minutes, then bill Medicare at a higher rate. The company also goes by FirstChoice Healthcare and Oaktree Medical Centre.
