This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Corning Clinical Laboratory, formerly Bioran Medical Laboratory, is to pay $6.68 million in damages and penalties to settle allegations that it submitted false claims for reimbursement of tests to Medicare and other US government programmes. The government alleged that Bioran manipulated doctors into receiving medically unnecessary tests for serum irons whenever they ordered certain basic blood series performed on automated equipment. These were then billed separately to Medicare, costing this and other government programmes over $3 million in total.
