Twelve-state Vascular Centers Case Settled

November 6, 2018

The United States settled civil health care fraud claims against Vascular Access Centers (VAC) and related entities for submitting fraudulent claims to Medicare for vascular surgical procedures not covered. VAC agreed to pay at least $3.825 million and up to $18.3 million. VAC admitted that its centers regularly performed and billed Medicare for vascular surgery procedures as prophylactic or screening measures, even though the patients presented without any documented evidence that they exhibited a need for therapies.
