Vascular Access Centers LP (VAC) and its 20+ related corporations in multiple states have agreed to pay $3.825 million over five years to settle whistleblower-brought allegations that VAC took part in an illegal patient referral kickback scheme and fraudulently billed Medicare for certain non-reimbursable procedures. The alleged fraud violated the Anti-Kickback Statute and False Claims Act and involved regularly scheduling, performing, and billing Medicare for certain vascular access procedures for End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) beneficiaries that were not routinely necessary. Two whistleblowers will share in the relator’s share of $612,000. DOJ; USAO EDLA; USAO SDNY
