Daiichi Sankyo Whistleblower Case Returns Over $39 Million to the Government
The detailed allegations described a program, which began in 2005, called “Physician Opinion Discussions” (or “PODs”), in which sales representatives targeted high decile physicians to be POD speakers to small groups of 3 or more fellow physicians. The only qualifications to lead a POD were that the physician be a high decile physician. According to our Complaint, all physicians who attended a POD were eventually able to lead their own POD, up to five times per year, with physician leaders receiving $500 or more per session.
Our client will receive a relator share payment of $6,122,838.60 plus accrued interest from the federal share of the settlement amount and a yet-to-be-announced share from the States.
