Helped genetic testing lab in clinical trials respond to False Claims Act whistleblower allegations

Genetic research, conceptual image

CRA’s Forensic Services professionals were retained by Jones Walker to assist its client, a genetic testing lab, respond to False Claims Act whistleblower allegations that it had furnished and billed federal payers for tests that were not medically necessary. We reviewed a sample population of charts for subjects who had been enrolled in clinical trials and assessed their eligibility for inclusion. Our findings allowed the client to mount a vigorous defense and achieve a favorable outcome.

The team was led by CRA Forensic Services Leader and Vice President Kristofer Swanson, with invaluable assistance from Patricia Peláez, Principal.
