Briefs: Healthways to settle lawsuit

Healthways Inc. said that it took a $40 million charge in its current first quarter related to the proposed settlement of a whistleblower lawsuit against the company.
The lawsuit, filed 15 years ago by a former employee, is related to the Nashville-based disease management company's former Diabetes Treatment Center of America business. The lawsuit alleges that Diabetes Treatment illegally paid doctors for referrals.
