$2M Recovered from NJ Hospital to Settle False Claims Allegations

June 11, 2009

According to a June 9 DoJ press release, “[f]rom 1993 to 2004,  [Univ. of  Medicine and Denistry of New Jersey’s] University Hospital submitted claims to Medicaid for outpatient physician services that were also being billed by doctors working in the hospital’s outpatient centers. By submitting duplicate claims for payment, University Hospital effectively doubled billed the government’s Medicaid program.”

The suit filed by Dr. Steven Simring under the Federal False Claims Act echoed allegations in a previously-filed criminal complaint which resulted in a Deferred Prosecution Agreement under which the State of New Jersey and the federal Government  recouped $4.9 million for false claims to the Medicaid program.
