According to the Complaint, Myriad submitted improper or false payment claims to Medicare and Medicaid for the company’s cancer testing. Myriad’s cancer testing revenues were in some portion a result of these improper payment claims and lacked sustainability. These actions increased the likelihood of the company being the subject of a government regulation and potentially suffering fines and other penalties. The lawsuit states that Myriad’s public statements were false and misleading based on the facts of the case. When the market learned the true details about the company, investors suffered damages according to the lawsuit.

The Schall Law Firm represents investors around the world and specializes in securities class action lawsuits and shareholder rights litigation.
