Denver Hospital System Settles False Claims Allegations
Effective December 19, 2014, Denver Health and Hospital Authority entered into a settlement agreement with the Office of Inspector General (OIG) for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The $51,803.86 settlement resolves allegations that Denver Health submitted claims to Medicare for services provided to individuals it knew, or should have known, were incarcerated or in custody. In most circumstances, Medicare does not pay for health care services for individuals who are incarcerated or in custody. Senior Counsels Tamara Forys and Geeta Taylor represented OIG.
