Through the examination of large-scale laboratory kickback schemes, this session will discuss the Federal Anti-Kickback Statute, methods of investigation using public records and health plan data, and potential case outcomes. The case study involves an investigation of several national laboratories who had allegedly engaged in schemes to increase patient referrals by offering payments to physicians and practitioners on a per-specimen basis for lab tests that may not have been medically necessary. The investigation found evidence that more than 2,000 physicians and practitioners across the country received these alleged improper payments. The investigation also identified other issues in medical records, exposing system-wide risks and leading to potential recoveries.
