The civil and criminal healthcare fraud cases against FENG QIN, M.D. (“QIN”), a vascular surgeon, and his medical practice QIN MEDICAL P.C. (“QIN MEDICAL”) have been resolved. QIN, who practiced in Lower Manhattan and Far Rockaway, Queens, 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.
QIN previously paid $150,000 to settle a prior civil fraud lawsuit filed against him and his previous employer for engaging in fraudulent billing practices during the time period 2010 through 2012.
As a repeat offender, Dr. Qin now faces a lengthy suspension from participating in federal healthcare programs and must make a hefty monetary payment.
