The US Attorney’s Office stated Wednesday that AnMed Health in Anderson has agreed to pay more than $7 million after submitting false Medicare claims.

The suit alleged that AnMed billed for radiation oncology services when a qualified practitioner was not participating in the procedure, as required by Medicare regulations.

The suit also alleged that AnMed systematically billed a minor care clinic as an Emergency Department, and billed Emergency Department services even when the services were not rendered by a physician.
