NEW ORLEANS -- (Business Wire)
Former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr., Esq., a partner at the law firm of Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC (“KSF”), continues to investigate claims on behalf of investors of iRhythm Technologies (NasdaqGS: IRTC). Such investors are advised to contact KSF Managing Partner Lewis Kahn toll-free at 1-877-515-1850 or via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or visit https://www.ksfcounsel.com/cases/nasdaqgs-irtc/ to learn more.
The investigation concerns whether iRhythm and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in fraud, negligence or other unlawful business practices.
On December 1, 2020, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced its 2021 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) Final Rule establishing the payment policies and rates that Medicare will use next year. However, the Rule did not finalize pricing reimbursement rates for several items relevant to the Company, including codes related to cardiac monitoring. On this news, the price of iRhythm’s shares plummeted approximately 20%.
Then, on January 29, 2021, an analyst at Baird noted that Medicare Administrative Contractor rates published by Novitas Solutions, a Medicare administrative contractor, “look way lower” than those published in the MPFS. On this news, IRTC shares fell sharply during intraday trading.
