November 27, 2019

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (11/27, Carr) reported that a Monroeville, PA “man who owns two genetic testing labs was charged in federal court last week for his alleged involvement in a scheme that cost Medicare $127 million and for allegedly conspiring with companies to pay kickbacks for lab tests.” Ravitej Reddy faces “two counts of conspiracy to pay and receive kickbacks, one count of conspiracy to pay kickbacks and one count of offering and paying kickbacks, according to a complaint filed following an investigation led by the FBI and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.” Prosecutors “said Reddy’s labs received $60 million in reimbursements from more than $127 million in bills from Medicare.”
