Fresenius Medical, the world’s largest provider of kidney dialysis, received a subpoena from the U.S. Attorney in St. Louis. The subpoena seeks records from December 1996 forward concerning the company’s relationships with doctors.
The government is conducting a civil and criminal probe of the company. Federal scrutiny of billing practices at other dialysis centers is continuing.
Bloomberg ran an April 6, 2005 story on the probe.
