Thirty-Two Hospitals in 15 States Agreed to Pay More than $28 Million to Settle Whistleblower Lawsuit Brought by Phillips & Cohen LLP

Thirty-two hospitals in 15 states agreed to pay more than $28 million to settle a whistleblower lawsuit brought by Phillips & Cohen LLP alleging that the hospitals over charged Medicare for a type of back surgery known as kyphoplasty. More than 130 hospitals have now reached settlements with the Justice Department totaling $105 million as a part of aninvestigationspurred by a Phillips & Cohen "qui tam" (whistleblower) lawsuit. In addition, the government had previously settled similar allegations with Medtronic Spine LLC, which purchased Kyphon, the company that produced the balloon device used to perform kyphoplasty, in 2008, for $75 million. That brings the total settlement amount for the cases to approximately $180 million. Twenty-nine of the 32 hospitals in this round of settlements were named as defendants in that lawsuit. The lawsuit alleged hospitals submitted false claims to Medicare and other government healthcare programs by billing kyphoplasty as an inpatient, rather than an outpatient, procedure. District of New York have pursued this matter with amazing determination. Hospital settlement amounts: St. Cloud Hospital, St. Cloud, Minnesota - $500,000 Tampa General Hospital, Tampa, Florida - $2 million Five hospitals (Crestwood Medical Center, Huntsville, Alabama; St. Joseph's Hospital, Fort Wayne, Indiana; Carolinas Hospital System, Florence, South Carolina; Mary Black Health System, Spartanburg, South Carolina and Trinity Medical Center, Birmingham, Alabama) affiliated with Community Health Systems Inc., Franklin, Tennessee - $3.5 million Five hospitals (East Cooper Medical Center, Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina; North Fulton Hospital, Roswell, Georgia; Providence Memorial Hospital, El Paso, Texas; St. Francis Hospital, Memphis, Tennessee and Sierra Medical Center, El Paso, Texas) affiliated with Tenet Health Care Corp., Dallas, Texas - $2.2 million.
