Medical practitioners (seven GPs and four described as ‘medical practitioners’) agreed to repay a total of $3.25 million to the Commonwealth.

They did so under an agreement with the director of the Professional Services Review in October 2018.

The repayments were in acknowledgment they engaged in inappropriate practice in connection with providing certain Medicare item numbers, involving amounts from $10,000 to as high as $995,000.

In some instances bans were imposed on the rendering of services under certain item numbers.
