Government Settles False Claims Act Allegations Against American Access Care Holdings, LLC
American Access Care Holdings, LLC, which operated a vascular access center in Miami, has agreed to pay $1.2 million to resolve allegations that it violated the False Claims Act by billing Medicare for medically unnecessary percutaneous transluminal angioplasties (PTAs) and thrombectomies and by billing for more PTAs per patient encounter than permitted. Former American Access Care (AAC) facilities, including the one in Miami, are now operated by Fresenius Vascular Care, Inc. The conduct addressed by the settlement agreement took place prior to the merger between the two entities.
