A skilled nursing facility based in Orlando, Florida, Conway Lakes NC, LLC, and related entities and physicians, have agreed to pay $1.5 million to resolve allegations that they engaged in a unlawful kickback and referral scheme for Medicare and TRICARE beneficiaries.  Conway Lakes was alleged to have contracted with orthopedic surgeon Kenneth Krumins under a sham “medical director” arrangement in violation of the Stark Law and Anti-Kickback Statute to induce him to refer patients for rehabilitation services.  A former employee of Conway Lakes, Jonathan Montes de Oca, reported the arrangement by filing a qui tam case under the False Claims Act and will receive $267,000 of the proceeds.  USAO MDFL
