Health System Resolves False Claims Act Allegations

A multihospital health system resolved False Claims Act allegations involving allegedly unlawful financial relationships with a cardiology practice in alleged violation of the Anti-Kickback Statute and the Stark Law. Faegre Drinker represented the health system in the matter.

After extensive settlement negotiations, the health system settled both matters for $35 million.
