The resolution obtained in this matter was the result of a coordinated effort between the Justice Department’s Civil Division, Commercial Litigation Branch, Fraud Section, and the United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Missouri, with assistance from the FBI, the HHS-OIG, and the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit of the Missouri Attorney General’s Office.

The investigation and resolution of this matter illustrates the government’s emphasis on combating healthcare fraud. One of the most powerful tools in this effort is the False Claims Act. Tips and complaints from all sources about potential fraud, waste, abuse, and mismanagement, can be reported to the Department of Health and Human Services at 800-HHS-TIPS (800-447-8477).

The matter was handled by Fraud Section Attorneys Diana Cieslak, David Finkelstein, and James Nealon, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Joshua Jones for the Eastern District of Missouri.

The case is captioned United States ex rel. Cairns, et al. v. DS Medical, LLC, et al., 1:12-cv-0004-LPR (E.D. Mo.).

The claims resolved by the settlement are allegations only and there has been no determination of liability.
