The manufacturer of devices for treatment of atrial fibrillation (irregular heartbeats) tentatively settled with the US Department of Justice allegations of false claims for $3.8 million.  The DOJ claimed that the manufacturer, AtriCure, marketed its devices beyond the scope of its FDA clearance and by instructing hospitals to use incorrect Medicare billing codes.
