Laboratory Corp. of America, Burlington, N.C., reported in a regulatory filing that it received a subpoena from the U.S. attorney's office in New Jersey. The subpoena requests business and financial records on capitation and risk-sharing arrangements with government and private payers from 1993 through 1999. The laboratory-services provider said an office representative told them that the company was not a target of the investigation and that similar subpoenas were sent to a number of other lab and non-lab companies. Quest Diagnostics on Monday reported receiving a similar subpoena. -- by Cinda Becker
