State Sen. Steve Dickerson, R-Nashville, has denied all allegations against him by state and federal officials in a wide-ranging case against Comprehensive Pain Specialists and its owners for allegedly defrauding Medicare and Medicaid. The lawsuit specifically identifies Dickerson as having submitted more than 750 false claims amounting to nearly $6.5 million for specimen validity, genetic and psychological testing, and for acupuncture. In a response filed this week, Dickerson denies the claims and any knowledge of a broader scheme to defraud Medicare and Medicaid, the Nashville Post reports.
