The U.S. Justice Department has accused a North Hollywood healthcare company of defrauding the federal government of millions of dollars by overbilling for services its doctors performed.

Goldberg Kohn filed the initial lawsuit on behalf of Dr. Bijan Oughatiyan, a former  IPC employee, under the qui tam provisions of the False  Claims Act, which encourages private citizens to report fraud against the government by allowing them to sue on behalf of the government and receive a share of any recovery.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages, but it could lead to a recovery in the tens of millions of dollars, said Matthew Organ, a Chicago attorney who represents Oughatiyan.
