Tennessee Attorney General Herbert H. Slatery III has reached an agreement with Dr. Ricardo Causo, accused of TennCare fraud, which requires the Chattanooga pediatrician to pay the State of Tennessee $125,897. Under the Tennessee Medicaid False Claims Act, the state alleges that from July 1, 2012, through August 31, 2017, Dr. Causo improperly submitted claims to the TennCare program for prolonged services that he did not render. The result was that Dr. Causo received payments for prolonged services for which he did not perform.
