Ten people will split $7.5 million as the result of reporting an acute-care company that illegally paid doctors for referrals.
Five whistle-blowers will receive the lion’s share, while four former employees and one contractor will get smaller amounts.
The illegal activity had taken place under a previous owner. The new company owner cooperated with the federal investigation. (United States ex rel. Kaczmarczyk, et al. v. SCCI Health Services, et al., No. 4:99-cv-01031, SD TX, 2006)
