Indianapolis-Based Medical Manager Wins $3.6M in Whistleblower Settlement

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An Indianapolis-based medical supply company’s former manager has won $3.6 million in a settlement of her whistleblower lawsuit accusing that company and a health insurance company of defrauding a government insurance program.

Crystal Derrick, who was a national account manager in Roche Diagnostics Corp.’s diabetes division, was awarded the money nearly two years after filing the whistleblower case against her former employer, according to documents filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Chicago.

Roche Diagnostics and Humana Inc., a Louisville, Kentucky-based health insurer, paid $12.5 million to settle a lawsuit after Derrick accused them of defrauding a government insurance program.
Derrick received 29% of that settlement agreement, totaling $3.625 million. The remainder of the payment went to the government, the Indianapolis Business Journal reported.
