Hospital reference laboratory has false claims investigation dismissed

Client(s) Hospital reference laboratory

Jones Day represented a hospital system's reference laboratory that serviced several hospitals and private physician practices in a qui tam action filed by an employee. We represented the hospital lab in the DOJ/OIG investigation that ultimately resulted in non-intervention by the government and dismissal of the relator's claims. The investigation focused on laboratory billing and relationships with private physician practices that utilized the lab. Jones Day also assisted the client in navigating the tricky issues associated with having a current employee as a whistleblower relator.
