Brookhaven Settles Medicare Fraud Charges

According to a PRNewswire, Brookhaven has settled a Medicare fraud matter that stretches back to 2005:

Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center, a Long Island, N.Y.-based hospital, has agreed to pay $2.92 million, plus interest, to settle allegations that the hospital defrauded Medicare, the Justice Department announced today.

The government alleged that the hospital fraudulently inflated its charges to Medicare patients to obtain enhanced reimbursement from the federal health care program.

More details are available in the release.
