Las Vegas urology clinics agree to pay $1 million settlement in medical billing case

A local urology practice will pay $1 million to the U.S. Department of Justice for improperly billing numerous federal health care organizations, according to Nevada U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden.

Las Vegas Urology, which has seven Las Vegas locations, improperly billed health care agencies such as Medicare, TRICARE, and others from 2005 to 2010.

The company settled with the Justice Department Friday to resolve the case and avoid any admission of liability, officials said.
