The company agreed to settle a lawsuit alleging it improperly billed government health plans for its genetic tests.

The deal ends an investigation by the SEC into certain accounting practices by Alere's foreign subsidiaries. The company also consented to a cease-and-desist order. 

In separate deals, Poplar Healthcare will pay the federal government nearly $900,000, while Piedmont Pathology will pay $601,000.
