On November 19, 2010, a former Vascular employee filed under seal a qui tam action against the Company alleging Vascular illegally marketed its Vari-Lase Short Kit to treat conditions other than those approved by the Food and Drug Administration and engaged in an illegal kickback scheme with doctors who prescribed the device for off-label use, all in violation of federal law.  The complaint also alleged that such illegal practices resulted in over $20 million in improper Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements.

Vascular announced on June 28, 2011, that it had received a subpoena from the United States Attorney's Office for the Western District of Texas under the Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act of 1996 requesting documents concerning such off-label marketing practices.  The government later elected to intervene in the qui tam action, the complaint for which was unsealed on August 14, 2012.
