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: The Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio - $1.74 million Citrus Memorial Health System, Inverness, Florida - $2.6 million Cullman Regional Medical Center, Cullman, Alabama - $350,000 Martin Memorial Medical Center, Stuart, Florida - $2 million MultiCare Tacoma General Hospital, Tacoma, Washington - $983,000 Norwalk Hospital, Norwalk, Connecticut - $920,000 Princeton Community Hospital Association, Princeton, West Virginia - $1,513,500 Sacred Heart Medical Center, Spokane, Washington - $906,000 Sarasota Memorial Hospital, Sarasota, Florida - $972,000 Spartanburg Regional Health Services District Inc., Spartanburg, South Carolina - $1.725 million.
