Arizona-based urgent care provider convicted of fraud, fined $12.5 million

PHOENIX – A network of urgent care centers based in Arizona was convicted and ordered last week to pay $12.5 million on charges of health care fraud and engaging in monetary transactions derived from unlawful activity.

That fine is equal to the estimated loss that the illegal activity, which included fraudulent billing, inflicted on health insurance companies.

UCXtra Umbrella LLC, which run under the name Urgent Care Extra, operated more than 30 urgent centers around the state, most of which were in the Phoenix and Tucson areas.
