New Brain Center Closes Amid Medicare Dispute (Bethesda Magazine):
“NeurExpand Brain Center, the brain fitness and development center that opened in August in Friendship Heights, abruptly closed this month amid a dispute with Medicare.
Neurologist Majid Fotuhi, NeurExpand’s founder, said that Medicare reviewed the practice’s clinical program and determined there wasn’t enough scientific evidence to support the treatments offered. In September, Medicare stopped reimbursing the practice for the services it provided. At that time, costs for between 50 percent and 60 percent of the patients were paid through Medicare, he said…NeurExpand is also closing its Columbia location and has already closed its Lutherville office. The business has no other locations.”
