Health Diagnostic Laboratory close to settlement agreement

NHCAA SmartBrief | Mar 25, 2015

Richmond, Va.-based Health Diagnostic Laboratory, which faces allegations of paying kickbacks to doctors who sent blood samples for testing at the laboratory, is close to completing a settlement agreement with the Department of Justice. A tentative deal would have the lab pay almost $50 million, say people with knowledge of the case. In a statement, Health Diagnostic said a denial of wrongdoing would be included in the agreement, and it will be allowed to continue participating in federal health programs.
