RVT Exam Settlement

Welcome to the Official Website for the RVT Exam Settlement

IF YOU TOOK ONE OR MORE REGISTERED VASCULAR TECHNOLOGY (“RVT”) EXAM(S) ADMINISTERED BY THE AMERICAN REGISTRY FOR DIAGNOSTIC MEDICAL SONOGRAPHY, INC. (“ARDMS”) DURING THE PERIOD OF SEPTEMBER 6, 2016 TO MARCH 14, 2017 AND YOU WERE ADVISED THAT YOU FAILED AT LEAST ONE EXAM, BUT IN ACTUALITY, YOU HAD PASSED AT LEAST ONE OF THESE EXAMS, THE NOTICE CONTAINS IMPORTANT INFORMATION THAT PERTAINS TO YOU. PLEASE READ IT CAREFULLY. YOU MAY GET A PAYMENT FROM A CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT, BUT YOU MAY NEED TO SUBMIT A FORM TO DO SO.

Defendant Inteleos, Inc. f/k/a the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Inc. (“ARDMS”) has agreed to pay a total of $572,641 to settle all claims alleged against it that arise from or are related in any way to the class action lawsuit, Miller, et al. v. Inteleos, Inc., Case No. 1:17-cv-00763-DAP, filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio (the “Class Action Lawsuit”), any fact and/or circumstance related to any incorrect scoring of any Registered Vascular Technology (“RVT”) exam(s) taken by Plaintiffs, or any fact and/or circumstance which has been alleged, or which could have been alleged, in the Class Action Lawsuit arising out of the incorrect scoring of the RVT exam(s). The proposed settlement (“the Settlement”) is a compromise of all claims by Plaintiffs including allegations of negligence, breach of contract, consumer protection violations, and unjust enrichment in connection with a scoring error in which a number of people who took the RVT exam during the period of September 6, 2016 to March 14, 2017 were advised because of a scoring error, that they had failed at least one RVT exam when, in actuality, they had passed the exam.

This website provides information about the settlement in answers to Frequently Asked Questions. If you have any further questions, you can contact the Settlement Administrator here.
