A.G. Schneiderman Announces Settlement With Brooklyn Medical Center That Ran Satellite Facility Without An Operating Certificate
NEW YORK - Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman today announced that New York State and the federal government have entered into a $600,000 settlement agreement with Brooklyn Plaza Medical Center to resolve allegations that the diagnostic and treatment center ran a satellite facility, the Whitman Ingersoll Farragut Health Center, without an operating certificate. The settlement also resolves allegations that Brooklyn Plaza Medical Center disguised the satellite facility's Medicaid billings to make them appear as if the services were rendered at the Brooklyn Plaza Medical Center, not the satellite center. Those fraudulent billings caused the Medicaid program to offer inflated reimbursements for services rendered. The settlement money will go to reimburse the State of New York and the federal government for their contributions to the New York State Medicaid Program.
