Two physicians, Dr. S. and Dr. V., leased a nuclear camera so they
would no longer have to refer their patients to the local hospital for
nuclear imaging. Faced with the prospect of losing over a third of its
$2,274,094 in annual gross nuclear medicine revenues, the hospital
responded by threatening to revoke the doctors’ admitting privileges.
Lengthy negotiations ensued, at the end of which the hospital agreed to
sublease the camera from the two physicians; the camera remained at the
physicians’ offices but other physicians with privileges at the hospital
could use it. Four other local physicians who provided the same or
similar services to patients as Dr. S. and Dr. V. brought a qui tam
action alleging that the sublease violated the Anti-Kickback and Stark
Acts and that the defendants falsely certified compliance with those
laws in connection with claims submitted to Medicare in violation of the
False Claims Act.
