Sleep Testing Company Settles Federal Lawsuit
Snap Diagnostics LLC, a nationwide provider of home sleep testing diagnostic services, will pay $3.5 million to the United States to settle a civil lawsuit accusing the company of defrauding Medicare and four other federal health care programs through kickbacks and unnecessary home sleep testing. The suit alleged that founder Gil Raviv directed Snap to submit claims for patients’ second and third nights of home sleep testing when, in fact, the company knew that only a single night of testing was needed to effectively diagnose obstructive sleep apnea and that it routinely tested and claimed only one night for patients with private health insurance.
