DoJ Intervenes in False Claims Act Kickback Case Against St. Jude Medical

August 13, 2010

Whistleblower allegations of kickbacks and incentives illegally paid to doctors by medical-device company, St. Jude Medical, have gotten the attention of federal prosecutors. This week, DoJ was granted leave to join the pending whistleblower lawsuit — in a motion to the court the government acknowledged the legitimacy of the qui tam whistleblower’s claims that:

“St. Jude, a manufacturer of pacemakers and other heart devices, used post-market studies and device registries as mechanisms to pay physicians illegal kickbacks for using its products.”
