Medical Device Maker, Government Reach Tentative $10M Settlement for Alleged Kickback Scheme
The DOJ started investigating ELA for the alleged kickback in 2006. ELA has been accused of paying illegal kickbacks to physicians who bought the medical company's pacemakers. Details of how kickbacks were paid to physicians and in what form were not disclosed in the report.
Despite the tentative agreement to settle, the company said it is not guilty of any wrongdoing. The settlement will likely become official in the third quarter, according to the report.
