Advanced Pain Management Holdings, Inc. and its subsidiaries will pay $1 million to resolve claims brought by a whistleblower under the False Claims Act.  Defendants, which run ambulatory surgical centers, were alleged to have violated the Anti-Kickback Statute by improperly gifting incentive stock shares to non-employee physicians allegedly as a reward for past and anticipated referrals to APMH facilities, and by paying those physicians “medical director” fees tied to the volume of procedures at APMH facilities, without proper documentation of the agreement.  In addition, defendants were alleged to have performed unnecessary confirmatory urine drug testing on patients.  USAO ED WI
