Hoyer Law Group, in partnership with co-counsel Donna MacKenzie of Olsman MacKenzie Peacock & Wallace, is pleased to announce a significant settlement in a False Claims Act case against Averhealth. The case, involving allegations of fraudulent drug testing practices, has resulted in a settlement of over $1.3 million.

The Department of Justice’s press release details this case’s allegations and resolution, underscoring the importance of accountability and integrity in healthcare services. In 2019, Averhealth began performing drug screening and confirmation testing for the State of Michigan’s Children’s Protective Services and Foster Care programs under a contract with MDHHS. The whistleblower, represented by our firm and Ms. MacKenzie, played a crucial role in bringing these issues to light, ensuring that justice is served and that such practices are addressed.
