Brain health center closes after Medicare challenges its medical claims and treatments



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.”
