Cancer doctor and clinic agree to pay $2.9 million to settle federal whistleblower lawsuit

Raj Sadasivan did some of his most lucrative work altering medical records with a paper cutter and scissors, some of his former employees contend. Those records at the Hope Cancer Institute in Kansas City, Kan., became the key to an alleged attempt to bilk Medicare and other government programs out of millions of dollars — the largest federal health fraud case in the Kansas City area in recent years. Government claims against Sadasivan and the clinic amounted to $31.7 million.
