State of Hawaii Wins $7 Million Lawsuit against Liberty Dialysis, Sues for False Claims

Liberty Dialysis is being ordered to pay $7 million in overpayments to the state of Hawaii, which has filed a second false claims lawsuit against the dialysis provider. The $7 million reimbursement was awarded to the state to cover overpayments to the company between 2006 and 2010 for Liberty's Medicaid patients. A computer error in the state Department of Human Services claims processing system led to the original overpayments. The new lawsuit, filed alleges that Liberty knowingly exaggerated claims for a drug, despite an alert from a billing consultant. The lawsuit alleges reimbursement requests were inflated for a drug called Epogen, which is used during dialysis treatment. The complaint asserts intentional and negligent misrepresentation, unjust enrichment, and that a breach of contract took place. The state will seek triple damages for the overpayment plus civil penalties of $5,500 to $11,000 for each false claim submitted, as well as attorney fees and costs.
