Stryker files suit against DOJ, OIG

Pharma Compliance Alert, September 3, 2008

Stryker Corp. is suing the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Office of Inspector General (OIG) for issuing an “oppressive and overly broad” subpoena, according to a CNNMoney.com article.

According to the complaint, the DOJ and OIG are seeking a broad range of documents related to Stryker’s sales and marketing activities. The government is reportedly investigating Stryker for allegedly submitting false or otherwise improper Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement claims, and potentially violating anti-kickback and self-referral laws that apply to physicians.

Stryker said it has turned over 300,000 pages of information that prove its innocence, but the DOJ continued its investigation.
