    • Dr. Lewis' 10-Year OIG Audit

      Kaufman pediatrician Charles Turner Lewis, MD, battled fraud allegations levied against him by the Office of Inspector General (OIG) from 2005 to 2008 and emerged victorious. To his dismay, he is once again on the receiving end of an OIG letter alleging Medicaid overpayment. The 2015 Texas Legislature responded to TMA's call for improvements in OIG Medicaid fraud investigations of physicians with passage of Senate Bill 207. Organized medicine hopes the law's safeguards will afford due process to doctors under investigation.
