Healthways Inc. has settled a whistleblower lawsuit against the company. The lawsuit, filed 15 years ago by a former employee, is related to the Nashville-based disease management company’s former Diabetes Treatment Center of America business. The settlement, filed on behalf of the federal government, must be approved by the U.S. Department of Justice. The government did not intervene in the lawsuit which alleged that Diabetes Treatment illegally paid doctors for referrals. Under the settlement, if approved, Healthways will pay a total of $40 million with the government getting $28 million and the remaining $12 million covering costs and fees.
