Medical device-maker LivaNova USA, Inc. has agreed to pay $1.87 million to resolve claims that it paid improper kickbacks to physicians who were among the largest referrers of patients for LivaNova’s implanted epilepsy device.  The payments took the form of “speaking fees” for the doctors, although the doctors who received them were primarily speaking to their own staffs.  Ashley Case, a former employee of LivaNova, initiated the investigation by filing a case under the False Claims Act; she will receive an unspecified share of the settlement.  USAO NDGA
