A recent Modern Healthcare website article by Lisa Schencker and Sabriya Rice deals with the ongoing investigation by the Justice Department of a DaVita Health Care subsidiary.
The False Claims Act investigation centers on the medical necessity of the procedures performed at two Florida centers that are part of RMS Lifeline, a DaVita subsidiary that provides vascular access management services for dialysis patients, according to the filing. The Justice Department has asked for medical records for 10 patients, among other documents, from January of 2008 through the present.
