Healogics under federal investigation

Jacksonville-based Healogics, which runs wound care centers across the U.S., has been accused of performing unnecessary hyperbaric oxygen therapy on patients in an apparent scheme to defraud Medicare, former employees said in a False Claims Act suit unsealed Wednesday in a federal court.

Willie and Michelle Arnold, a former hyperbaric technologist and a former hyperbaric safety director at Healogics respectively, allege that more than half the hyperbaric treatments the company billed to Medicare were fraudulent, according to the qui tam suit, which was first filed in July 2014.
