Khouri Law Accolades

  • In a recent case involving an internal medicine physician, Khouri Law was able to successfully convince a Medicare administrative law judge that the statistical extrapolation formula used by Medicare was grossly flawed. The result was that an initial over payment determination made by Medicare of approximately 1.2 million dollars was reduced to approximately $89,000.
  • Khouri Law recently obtained a major victory by obtaining an order from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services administration law judge requiring private Medicare contractors to provide due process and discovery in audit proceedings.
  • Khouri Law prevailed in an audit of a cardiology practice group by educating auditors on evaluation and management code utilization issues and structuring Medicare compliance plan. Our Firm saved a prominent orthopedic group hundreds of thousands of dollars by advising how to structure adjunct physical therapy practice to comply with auditors demands.
  • Khouri Law recently obtained dismissal of multiple Medicare fraud charges against an Orange County based internist. The charges were based on the doctor's alleged failure to comply with Medicare's so called direct supervision requirement. Our Firm defended the doctor during a six week federal jury trial which could not reach a unanimous verdict. Prosecutors dismissed all charges against our client.
  • Our Firm prevailed in Medicare audit of podiatrist by educating auditors on appropriate billing for routine foot care.
  • Khouri Law prevailed in Medicare audit of IV infusion pharmacist by educating auditors on methods of compounding IV medications and attacking erroneous Medicare accounting assumptions.
  • Michael Khouri recently gained a favorable defense in a Medicare Administration Hearing for a California physician who Medicare alleged owed $438,000 of overpayment. Michael successfully argued that his client was without fault in the overpayment. As a result of the vigorous defense, our client was relieved of every penny of liability for the overpayment.

Mike is very proud of these results but remember that each case is different and the results in one case can not predict the results in another.
