Louisiana Hospital to pay $3.8 Million in Medicaid Settlement

Our Lady of Lourdes Regional Medical Center of Lafayette, LA has agreed to repay the government $3.8 million for defrauding Medicare and Medicaid by filing false claims for unnecessary heart procedures. The settlement enables the hospital to avoid admitting fault for the work performed there by Dr. Mehmood Patel, who was the subject of the fraud charges.

Patel’s heart procedures were first publicly questioned in 2004, when Lourdes and Lafayette General Medical Center revoked his hospital privileges, and patients began filing medical malpractice lawsuits. The suits claim Patel performed hundreds of medically unnecessary angioplasties and stent replacements during a period of several years.
