    I just took over an account from a rep that left and is trying to flip the business.

    The ASC called to post an MTP fusion and said “it’s Medicare”. I’m finding out this guy was charging under $1k on Medicare/Medicaid and $5k for private insurance.

    I feel like I’m in a Mexican stand off. If I don’t report this, does he? Then I’m banned.

    Also, he’s a big golfing buddy with the highest volume doc so I might lose some business anyway.

    It's insurance fraud to have different pricing based on a patient's insurance. As a rep you should steer clear of this practice as it will come back to you

    Who gets thrown under the bus here, the rep/company or the ASC?

    This is mild compared to the things that go on under the table on the west side of the state.
    Above the fold of the newspaper types of things.
