Vantage Oncology LLC, an owner and operator of radiation oncology centers, has agreed to pay more than $2.08 million to resolve a whistleblower’s allegations that it over-billed Medicare for radiation oncology services.

The government in this False Claims Act lawsuit accused Vantage of  double billing for certain procedures, billing for services without proper supporting documentation, and billing for radiation treatment provided without required doctor supervision.

The whistleblower in this case, a former Vantage employee, will receive $354,450 as his share of the settlement proceeds pursuant to the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act.
