Manchester doctor’s license suspended over claims of improper billing

MANCHESTER — A former Manchester doctor has agreed to a settlement over claims of improper billing, including some for tests his practice was not equipped to perform.

The State of New Hampshire Board of Medicine signed off on the agreement with Dr. Genesio W. Biesek last week and released the terms on Monday.

Biesek agreed to a one-year suspension of his license and a $1,500 fine.

The state board learned in 2009 that Biesek entered into a civil settlement with federal authorities over billing allegations. Without admitting any liability to the federal Office of Inspector General, Biesek agreed to pay $265,000 to resolve the allegations.

The state conducted its own investigation into Biesek, a former member of Manchester Internal Medical Associates. Under the state settlement, Biesek stipulated that if a disciplinary hearing were to take place, investigators could prove that he engaged in professional misconduct.

Among the allegations against Biesek was billing numerous patients for somatosensory testing, which MIMA was not equipped to perform. Biesek, who now lives in California, signed the agreement on July 29.
