Texas Judge Allows Medicare Fraud Suit to Proceed
Federal Judge T. John Ward of the Eastern District of Texas in Marshall has denied a motion by the East Texas Medical Center (ETMC) Regional Healthcare System to dismiss a case brought by realtor Linnea Rose. Rose’s whistle-blower case, filed in June 2005, alleges that the ETMC intentionally and systematically abused the federal Medicaid matching program. Rose contents that the ETMC received millions of dollars of federal Medicaid matching funds to which the hospital was not entitled.
The hospital’s court action had asserted that Rose was ineligible to file this suit as the information she used had been heard in Authority Board discussions, which the hospital argued were administrative proceedings.
The hospital maintains that this is a frivolous lawsuit.
