Federal prosecutors say 42-year-old Peter Breihof of Nutley and 41-year-old William Dailey of Wall entered their pleas Thursday in Newark.

The two worked for Parsippany-based Biodiagnostic Laboratory Services.

They were accused of paying doctors to refer blood samples and performing unnecessary tests to collect money from insurers and Medicare. Prosecutors say the lab made tens of millions of dollars from the yearslong scheme.

The two each pleaded guilty to a single count of conspiring to violate the anti-kickback statute and Federal Travel Act.  They face maximum five-year prison sentences and forfeited a combined $1.5 million.

An investigation of the doctors’ roles in the kickbacks continues.
