Boston Scientific to Pay $9.25 Million in Whistleblower Case

Boston Scientific Corp.’s Guidant LLC unit will pay $9.25 million to settle a whistleblower’s claim that the company over-billed the U.S. and private hospitals for heart pacemakers and defibrillators.

The U.S. Justice Department said today that the accord ends a lawsuit filed against Guidant by a former sales agent, Robert A. Fry, in federal court in Nashville, Tennessee. He will receive more than $2.3 million from the settlement.
