Maryland-based Bon Secours Health System and one of its surgical oncologists, Dr. Eugene Chang, agreed to pay $400,000 to settle charges of violating the False Claims Act by billing Medicare and other federal healthcare programs for non-covered breast examinations and ultrasounds. The allegations originated in a whistleblower lawsuit filed by a former Bon Secours practice manager and a former colleague of Dr. Chang under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act. They will receive a whistleblower award of $108,000 out of the proceeds of the government’s recovery. Whistleblower Insider
