Lincare, feds still at odds

Monday, February 28, 2005

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Lincare recently had preliminary discussions with the United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida in an effort to resolve an on-going investigation.

The company has cooperated with the investigation and has responded to document requests periodically over the last five years, Lincare stated in a Feb. 7 filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

As previously disclosed in June 2000, the investigation concerns, among other things, Lincare’s dealings with physicians and the delivery of respiratory and other services by certain operating centers.
