The physicians paying million-dollar Stark law settlements

Here are three physicians that have paid million-dollar Stark law settlements:

1. In March, a Houston physician and his facilities will pay $1.8 million to settle allegations of submitting fraudulent Medicare and Medicaid claims and violating Stark law.

2. In March of 2023, Saginaw, Mich.-based Covenant HealthCare and two physicians paid $69 million in three civil settlements for alleged improper arrangements with referring physicians. Among other claims, Covenant allegedly entered into contracts with physicians to serve as medical directors that did not satisfy any Stark law exceptions.
