Quest Diagnostics Lawsuit Settled

Quest Diagnostics will pay a $241 million settlement in a lawsuit filed by the state of California for failing to comply with regulations and overbilling for its services. The lawsuit claimed Quest over charged the state’s Medicaid program for their laboratory testing services.

Quest said yesterday that it will settle the lawsuit which claimed that Quest “didn’t comply” – which sounds like a nice euphemism – with California regulations, causing California’s Medicaid program to overpay for lab testing services.
