Medical Company to Settle Whistleblower Lawsuit

A medical equipment company in Mississippi will pay $1.8 million to settle a 2009 whistleblower lawsuit that accused the company of defrauding government insurance groups. According to the suit, Pinnacle Medical Solutions over-billed Medicare and the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program for the delivery of certain diabetic supplies. The main plaintiff in the suit, who initially reported the fraudulent charges to Pinnacle higher-ups, was fired in 2009 after her complaints were ignored. Kent Faulk, The Birmingham News 09/05/2012
