Feng Qin, M.D., a vascular surgeon who in 2015 settled claims that he performed medically-unnecessary vascular surgeries, has again been charged with such unlawful practices.  As reported by an unidentified whistleblower who brought a case under the False Claims Act, Qin routinely scheduled patients for surgeries months in advance, regardless of whether there was a justifiable clinical reason for the surgery.  At times, Qin would alter medical records.  Qin would then bill Medicare for these procedures, despite his knowledge that procedures on patients that are not medically reasonable and necessary are not covered by Medicare.  USAO SDNY
