$15.75 Million Settlement reached to resolve False Claims Act Allegations against a Kentucky Addiction Clinic, Clinical Lab and Two Doctors

Settlement Amount: 

A settlement has been reached to resolve False Claims Act allegations against SelfRefind, PremierTox LLC,  and the owners of SelfRefind and PremierTox.  They are accused of submitting claims to Medicare and Kentucky’s Medicaid program for tests that were medically unnecessary, more expensive than those performed or billed in violation of the Stark Law.

The government alleged that, after Wood and Peavler became owners of PremierTox, SelfRefind began referring comprehensive urine drug screening tests to PremierTox that were unnecessary and many times more expensive than other suitable alternative tests.  The government also alleged that PremierTox submitted to Medicare and Medicaid inflated claims that misidentified the class of drug being tested and billed for tests that were referred by SelfRefind in violation of the Stark law.
