Hospitals Request Dismissal of Whistle-Blower Fraud Lawsuit

North Carolina Baptist Hospital is asking a federal judge to dismiss an amended federal lawsuit by a Clemmons whistle-blower plaintiff, citing "fundamental deficiencies" in the complaint. The first lawsuit by Joseph Vincoli was filed in June 2009 in the Middle District of N.C. against Baptist and Carolinas Healthcare Systems of Charlotte. Vincoli initially claimed that Baptist and Carolinas fraudulently obtained tens of millions of dollars from Medicare and Medicaid through an arrangement that artificially inflated their expenses. He said the hospitals violated the Federal False Claims Act. Vincoli raised the financial stakes of his accusations in his second amended complaint. He now claims the systems "failed to disclose on their Medicare cost reports more than a billion dollars in related-party transactions and falsely claimed more than a billion dollars in fictitious costs for employee health-care benefits that were not actually out-of-pocket costs. Under the federal act, whistle-blowers who uncover fraud against the government are entitled to up to 35% of what the government recovers. The U.S. Justice Department considered joining the lawsuit on behalf of the Medicare program, but told the court in September that it would not do so. The department closed its case against Carolinas in January 2016. Vincoli signed a confidential settlement with Baptist in May 2008 that he says does not prevent him from making future claims against the system. The Baptist response included Vincoli received $150,000 and a mutual release of claims that included the False Claims Act from 2000 through the signing of the confidential settlement. As a result, Baptist said the court should dismiss any claims against the hospital that existed on or before May 2008. Baptist said Vincoli "fails to state a viable retaliation claim because the alleged retaliation occurred years after Vincoli's NCBH termination, and none of the factual allegations connect the purported retaliatory acts to Vincoli's pursuit of this lawsuit." Baptist sued Vincoli in January 2011, accusing Vincoli of breaching their confidential settlement by contacting the State Health Plan and other state agencies about his concerns and "providing disparaging and/or confidential information." Baptist withdrew the lawsuit in October 2011, about six weeks after the Winston-Salem Journal reported on the case. Vincoli accuses the hospitals of retaliating against him by going to the McCrory administration to get him fired from his administrative role with the Department of Public Safety. He held that position for more than three years before the department said his job was eliminated in December 2013. Vincoli has said he believes action from Baptist officials, including former president Donny Lambeth - now a state representative from Forsyth - cost him his state job. In July, the state Ethics Commission dismissed Vincoli's complaint against Lambeth, saying there was insufficient evidence to constitute a violation.
