Clinic, Surgical Products Company agree to settle False Claims Charge
An Iowa health clinic and a Michigan artificial joint manufacturer have agreed to pay $345,000 to the Medicare Trust Fund to settle a federal kickback case.
The case is based on the fact that Stryker Corporation, a Michigan company, and its affiliates made payments from 2000-03 to The Center for Neuroscienses, Orthopedics & Spine, or CNOS, in order to induce CNOS and Siouxland Surgery Center of Dakota Dunes, Iowa, to buy orthopedic surgical products from Stryker, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Sioux Falls.
The federal Anti-Kickback Act prohibits the payments from one entity to another for the purpose of inducing the purchase of goods or services. Click the following link to read the full account of this kickback settlement in the Sioux City Journal.
