    Nature of Complaint

    The physician’s sole practitioner General Practice Medicaid payments were audited by the Department of Health Services (DHS), and determined that the physician had been overpaid in the amount of $6,180.75. The overpayments were a result of billing issues and the physician admitted that “more detailed support of the coding would have been appropriate. DHS dismissed the action and the physician repaid Medicaid.

    Subsequently, the Division of Enforcement investigated the physician’s prescriptive practice and record keeping and found that it fell below the minimal competence in the profession. Inadequacies include the physician’s failure to conduct and/or document patient history and initial examination, failure to document the location of the patient’s pain, failure to document rationale for increasing medications and did not record pain scores, failed to use narcotic pain management contracts and failed to conduct toxicology testing to assess compliance. These inadequacies create an unacceptable risk that patients could obtain narcotic medication for purposes other a legitimate pain management and/or that an underlying medical condition may not have been adequately diagnosed or treated. The physician has fully cooperated with the Board’s investigation and agrees he could use education on prescribing and documenting pain medications.

    Action Taken

    The Wisconsin Medical Examining Board has issued a Final Decision and Order in which the following is ORDERED and is not limited to the following.

    • The physician is Reprimanded.
    • The physician’s medical license is Limited including and not limited to successful completion of Board approved continuing education and provide proof of completion to the Board.
    • The physician shall pay the costs of this proceeding in the amount of $1,500.00.

    January 26, 2011 – Order Granting Full Licensure
