Alabama Physician and Practice Settle Case Involving Kickback and Stark Allegations
On April 5, 2018, AMC - Affordable Medical Care f/k/a Andalusia Medical Center and Dr. Kevin Diel (collectively, "AMC"), Opp, Alabama, entered into a $40,500.50 settlement agreement with OIG. As a result of its investigation, OIG alleged that AMC received improper remuneration from Millennium Health, LLC f/k/a Millennium Laboratories, Inc. (Millennium), in the form of point of care test cups which resulted in prohibited referrals. OIG further alleged that the referrals were prohibited because the remuneration created a financial relationship and that AMC caused Millennium to present claims for designated health services that resulted from the prohibited referrals. Senior Counsels Andrea Treese Berlin and Geoffrey Hymans represented OIG.
