DMC to Pay a $30 Million Settlement to the Federal Government

The Detroit Free Press reported that the Detroit Medical Center has agreed to pay $30 million to the federal government to settle claims that involved violations of the Anti-Kickback Statute and Stark from improper financial relationships with referring physicians.  The majority of the relationships at issue in the DMC matter involved office lease agreements and independent contractor relationships that were either not consistent with fair market value or not in writing.  If you are a provider and would like to ensure that your relationships comply with Stark and the Anti-Kickback Statute, please contact Wachler & Associates.
