Former Orthofix (NSDQ:OFIX) territory manager Brian Racey was charged late last month with defrauding Medicare for $250,000 in false claims for the company's Physio-Stim bone growth stimulator.

Between 2004 and 2008, Racey allegedly forged patient medical records and altered physician prescriptions in order to justify Medicare reimbursement for Physio-Stim use in otherwise non-covered cases.
