Lawsuit Claims Cancer Doctors Filed Fraudulent Bills with US Government
A former administrator of the largest practice for cancer treatment in Southwest Virginia has filed a whistle-blower lawsuit against the practice and some of the doctors who work there, alleging that they submitted false claims to the federal government, according to a story in the Roanoke Times today.
Timothy Callahan filed a lawsuit against Oncology and Hematology Associates of Southwest Virginia, eight of the doctors who work there and two related companies in April 2000 under the federal False Claims Act, according to court documents unsealed in federal court. A federal judge unsealed a handful of the documents in the case in November 2004. But it is not clear when those documents were made available to the public through the court’s electronic filing system. Click here for the full story.
