LAWSUITS NEWS & LEGAL INFORMATION
Gambro Healthcare Laboratory Services
The company, as well as another related company in Florida and the parent company in Colorado, have settled with federal authorities over allegations of Medicare/Medicaid fraud. The government alleges that two laboratories in Florida were improperly servicing people suffering from end stage renal disease, essentially kidney failure and incurable without dialysis or transplant. The two labs in question agreed to pay a combined total of $53 million to the government, one of the largest Medicare/Medicaid fraud settlements ever received. Both laboratories were run by Colorado-based Gambro Healthcare, which is owned by the Swedish company Gambro Group, based out of Stockholm. The company did not fight the allegations any further after the settlement, and accepted responsibility for its actions. (Aug-04-00) [SOUTH FLORIDA BUSINESS JOURNAL]
