Civil Plaintiff

$2.34M Settlement Reached by Fort Myers Cancer Treatment Center

A multi-million dollar agreement by the Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute, an oncology group headquartered in Fort Myers, was announced Tuesday by United States Attorney Maria Chapa Lopez.

The civil settlement agreement will return $2,341,508.91 that was overpaid by the U.S. Veterans Administration for certain claims relating to physician-administered drugs.

Although the majority of veterans enrolled in the VA healthcare system receive care in VA-operated medical facilities, the VA may also contract with non-VA facilities such as Florida Cancer Specialists to provide services that are not readily available from a VA medical facility. The Code of Federal Regulations allows for VA reimbursement of non-VA care providers for certain physician-administered drugs in accordance with Medicare pricing schedules.
