New Jersey biotechnology company Bio-Reference Laboratories, Inc., will pay $11.5 million to resolve two actions brought by whistleblowers alleging that defendant violated the Anti-Kickback statute by paying unlawful remuneration to physicians based on the volume of those doctors’ referrals to defendant.  The remuneration took the form of payments for a percentage of the cost of electronic medical records software used by the doctors.  In addition, defendant was alleged to have unlawfully billed Medicare and Tricare for testing performed on hospital inpatients, instead of billing the hospitals themselves.  USAO SDNY
