Inform Diagnostics, an Irving, Texas-based pathology laboratory company, has agreed to pay $63.5 million to settle allegations that it violated the False Claims Act by  engaging in improper financial relationships with referring physicians. The settlement stems from allegations that the company violated the Anti-Kickback Statute and the Stark Lawby providing referring physicians with subsidies for electronic health records (EHR) systems and free or discounted technology consulting services. The Anti-Kickback Statute and the Stark Law restrict the financial relationships that health care providers, including laboratories, may have with doctors who refer patients to them.
