A non-healthcare entrepreneur based in South Florida was working in the healthcare space. He received a civil investigative demand regarding his role in encouraging physicians to prescribe particular DME equipment, thus engaging in suspected health care fraud. We perceived the potential value of the claim was $4.6 million; if trebled, that amount could have been $13.8 million.
