Arch Health Partners, Inc. has agreed to pay $2.9 million to resolve fraud allegations brought by a former employee turned whistleblower, Catherine Jones.  Jones alleged in a qui tam suit that the San Diego-based healthcare provider had falsely billed Medicare for evaluation and management services that lacked sufficient documentation, in violation of the False Claims Act.  Based on self-disclosures by Arch Health, the United States also alleged that referring physicians were being compensated above fair market value, in violation of the Anti-Kickback and Stark Acts.  Jones will receive $183,830 of the settlement proceeds.  USAO SDCA
