AG Rokita Recovers $2.9 Million for Medicaid Overbilling

  • Indiana AG Todd Rokita announced a settlement with hospital network Parkview Health System, Inc. to resolve allegations that four hospitals in the network (collectively, “Parkview”) violated Indiana’s Medicaid False Claims Act by overbilling for services.
  • According to the Settlement Agreement, between January 1, 2017 and March 1, 2021, Parkview submitted claims to Indiana Medicaid for patient treatments in its Anticoagulation Therapy Units that incorrectly billed the treatments as specialty services rather than as general clinic services, leading to substantially higher reimbursements.
  • Under the terms of the settlement, Parkview will pay the state approximately $2.9 million, which consists of approximately $1.3 million in restitution and $1.6 million in additional recoveries.
