Catholic Medical Center Settles Kickback Claims For $3.8 Million

Catholic Medical Center in Manchester has agreed to pay $3.8 million to resolve claims that it violated a federal anti-kickback law by making payments to a cardiologist who referred patients to its New England Heart Institute, U.S. Attorney John Farley announced Wednesday.

In a statement, Farley did not name the cardiologist and said that CMC did not admit liability in the settlement.
