Quest Diagnostics Inc will pay $241 million to settle a civil lawsuit that alleged that the company had failed to comply with regulations, leading to overbilling for its services. According to the lawsuit, Medi-Cal – California’s Medicaid program – had overpaid for the company’s laboratory testing services.
The lawsuit was filed in the California Superior Court by smaller rival Hunter Laboratories. The State of California intervened in the case as a Plaintiff. Quest has agreed to reporting obligations regarding its pricing for a limited period and will provide Medi-Cal with a discount until the end of July 2012. Under the settlement, the company will be released from all claims in the lawsuit.
