A settlement has been reached in a whistleblower class action lawsuit brought against RehabCare Group Inc, RehabCare Group East Inc and Rehab Systems of Missouri and management company Health Systems Inc.  They are accused of engaging in a kickback scheme related to the referral of nursing home business.
