Florida-based respiratory equipment supplier Rotech Healthcare Inc. agreed to pay $9.68 million to settle claims of violating the False Claims Act by submitting claims for portable oxygen contents to Medicare for beneficiaries who did not use or require them. The Company further admitted to billing Medicare regardless of whether such contents were delivered. The allegations originated in a whistleblower lawsuit filed under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act by former Rotech employee Janet Hale. She will receive a whistleblower award of $1,645,600 from the proceeds of the government’s recovery. DOJ
