OSCEOLA, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  A high-tech medical testing lab in northwest Wisconsin has been searched by the F-B-I, apparently to investigate possible Medicare billing fraud. Neuro-Science of Osceola said yesterday the search appeared to be related to previous misconduct by a former employee, involving Medicare billing procedures.

Neuro-Science said it sued the former worker for theft-and-fraud, and the court case is still underway. The company said it's cooperating fully with investigators.

Polk County Sheriff Peter Johnson said his deputies helped with traffic control while the F-B-I executed its search warrant. Wisconsin F-B-I spokesman Leonard Peace would only confirm that a warrant was executed. He would give no other details.

Neuro-Science deals with a variety of neurologic, hormone, and immune system testing.
