Vic Wadhwa, former chief financial officer for multiple pain management clinics in Maryland, pleaded guilty to charges of soliciting and receiving kickbacks in exchange for laboratory test referrals. Wadhwa conspired with others to divert urinalysis tests to a laboratory in New Jersey and received nearly $500,000 in kickbacks, according to U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein. From July 2011 through July 2012, the clinics received $1,376,540.85 from the lab, and the lab received $4,033,846.70 from Medicare, the Federal Employees Health Benefit Program and private insurers for lab work from the clinics, Rosenstein said.
