NJ Hospital to Pay $3.02 Million in Settlement of Qui Tam Lawsuit for Allegations of Medicare Fraud

The U.S. government will intervene in a lawsuit involving a New York Hospital and allegations of defrauding Medicare and has entered into a settlement with a New Jersey Hospital this week.

The United States settled for $3.02 million, plus interest, with Trinitas Regional Medical Center.

Both hospitals had lawsuits brought against them by a whistleblower, Tony Kite, in 2005 under the qui tam provision of the False Claims Act. Kite will receive about $679,000 plus interest out of the recovery from Trinitas Hospital.

Both hospitals allegedly fraudulently inflated their charges to Medicare patients to obtain larger reimbursements from Medicare.
