Guidant Corporation (GDT) to Pay $9.25 Million in False Claims Settlement; Former Salesman to Get $2.3 Million


9/27/2011 9:44:46 AM

The U.S. Justice Department said Monday that a medical device manufacturer has agreed to pay $9.25 million in a false claims settlement. Guidant LLC, a subsidiary of Boston Scientific Corp. in Natick, Mass., allegedly promoted the longevity and reliability of its pacemakers and defibrillators to physicians in an effort to persuade them to purchase Guidant products over competing devices. The company allegedly touted the generous credits available should a device need to be replaced while covered under warranty.
