  3. Medical Device Maker Settles Allegations it Improperly Compensated VA Podiatrists

    A medical device manufacturer based in Sunnyvale, California has agreed to pay $3 million to settle allegations it improperly compensated podiatrists at four Veterans Affairs medical facilities to promote use of its product. Government investigators allege that Spiracur, Inc. improperly compensated VA podiatrists with gifts, gratuities, and excessive speaking fees in order to increase sales of its product.

    Spiracur manufactures and sells a negative pressure wound treatment product, known as “the SNaP system,” which is used primarily in the treatment of diabetic ulcers. Spiracur improperly compensated VA podiatrists who worked at VA facilities in Phoenix, Atlanta, San Francisco, and Cleveland. Between 2010 and 2015, Spiracur sold those facilities just over $3.3 million in SNaP systems.
