Clinical Lab Partners settles False Claims Act case

Newington, Conn.-based Clinical Lab Partners has agreed to pay $145,789.34 to settle allegations the company submitted false claims to Medicare, according to HHS' Office of the Inspector General.

In its lawsuit, the OIG alleged CLP submitted claims for high complexity urine drug tests to Medicare that surpassed the number of units allowed by the government health program. The OIG further alleged CLP used a code to bypass computer programming that would have normally rejected the excess claims.OIG logo

Although CLP has agreed to settle the allegations, there has been no admission of wrongdoing.
