Pennsylvania joined with other states and the federal government in a $306 million civil settlement that resolves allegations that Olympus America, Inc. and some of its subsidiaries paid illegal kickbacks to healthcare providers. The settlement was the result of a whistleblower lawsuit – United States et al., ex rel. John Slowik v. Olympus America, Inc., et al – filed in New Jersey. The lawsuit alleged that Olympus used improper financial incentives to induce doctors and hospital executives to buy a wide ranging array of its endoscopes and other surgical equipment, and to thereby unlawfully increase sales and gain market share.
