Connecticut Hospital Settles False and Fraudulent Medicare Claims Case

On April 18, 2017, Hartford Hospital (Hartford), Connecticut, entered into a $2,469,374 settlement agreement with OIG. The settlement agreement resolves allegations that Hartford submitted claims where patients received home health services within three days of the patients’ release from Hartford that were improperly coded as discharged rather than as a post-acute care transfer. OIG's Consolidated Data Analysis Center and Office of Counsel to the Inspector General, represented by Senior Counsels Geoffrey Hymans and Nancy Brown, collaborated to achieve this settlement.
