Vascular Surgeon Resolves Charges
Civil and criminal health care fraud cases against Feng Qin, a vascular surgeon, and his medical practice, Qin Medical P.C., have been resolved. Qin was criminally charged in December 2018 with fraudulently billing Medicare for vascular surgery procedures performed on End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) patients that were not medically reasonable and necessary or covered under Medicare rules; the United States also filed a civil health care fraud complaint against Qin and Qin Medical in December 2018.
“By billing Medicare for medically unnecessary procedures, Dr. Qin needlessly compromised patient care and victimized taxpayers,” said Scott Lampert, special agent in charge at the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Office of Inspector General. Read a Department of Justice press release.
