According to the Complaint, Alere made false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: that the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, Arriva Medical, LLC ("Arriva"), was submitting claims to Medicare for deceased patients; that this conduct subjected Arriva to revocation of its Medicare enrollment; and that as a result of the above, Alere's statements about its business, operations, and prospects, were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times. On November 4, 2016, Alere announced that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services alleged that Arriva submitted claims for 211 deceased patients over a five-year period, and thus revoked Arriva's Medicare enrollment.
