Episode 168 — Review of Merit Medical False Claims Act Settlement

Medical device maker Merit Medical Systems (“MMS”) agreed to pay $18 million to resolve allegations that the company submitted false claims to Medicare, Medicaid and TRICARE by paying kickbacks to physicians and hospitals to induce increased use of MMS products.

Dr. Charles J. Wolf, Merit’s former chief compliance officer, filed a whistleblower complaint against the firm in April 2016 following his resignation, in which he highlighted his repeated efforts to address violations that he said were deeply ingrained in Merit’s culture.

In this Episode, Michael Volkov reviews the False Claims Act settlement involving MMS.
