Michigan Drug and Alcohol Rehab Center Settles Case Involving Kickback and Stark Allegations

On May 24, 2018, Recovery Pathways, LLC (Recovery Pathways), Essexville, Michigan, entered into a $64,555 settlement agreement with OIG. The settlement agreement resolves allegations that Recovery Pathways 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 Recovery Pathways 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.
