Houston Hospital Agrees to $10 Million Settlement of Medicare Fraud Allegations

The AP reports that, according to a statement from the Justice Department Thursday, “One of Houston’s most prestigious hospitals has agreed to pay nearly $10 million to settle allegations it defrauded the federal Medicare program.” Under the agreement, the Methodist Hospital in Houston will pay $9.9 million “so it can continue focusing on its clinical and academic missions,” the hospital stated. In doing so, the hospital will resolve claims that it “improperly increased charges to Medicare patients to obtain enhanced reimbursement from the federal health insurance program for the elderly.”

From the American Association for Justice news release.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
