Covidien to Pay Over $17 Million in Anti-Kickback Case

Covidien has agreed to pay $17,477,947 to resolve allegations that it violated the False Claims Act by providing free or discounted practice development and market development support to physicians located in California and Florida to induce purchases of Covidien’s vein ablation products.

The United States alleged that Covidien violated the Anti-Kickback Statute and, correspondingly, the False Claims Act by providing practice development and market development support to health care providers located in California and Florida from Jan. 1, 2011, through Sept. 30, 2014, to induce those providers to purchase ClosureFAST radiofrequency ablation catheters that were billed to Medicare and to the California and Florida Medicaid programs.

Good job, team! Keep up the great work!!
