Kentucky Medicaid Program to Receive $41,000 in Genetic Testing Fraud Settlement

Attorney General Andy Beshear announced on Friday, April 27, 2018, that Kentucky will receive a settlement of more than $41,000 as part of a Medicaid fraud case involving genetic testing services. The settlement resolves allegations that Delaware-based Natera submitted false or fraudulent claims to government health care programs for its preconception and prenatal genetic testing services. States alleged that Natera improperly billed for tests that were not subject to reimbursement, caused misrepresentations of the services, and falsely obtained payments, and caused reimbursements of tests at a higher rate than otherwise allowed.
