Success in Dismissal of FCA Claims Against CHS Hospital Receives Coverage by Bloomberg BNA and AHLA

Media Mentions

February 11, 2015

The recent success of Bass, Berry & Sims attorneys in their representation of a CHS hospital in Tucson, Arizona against False Claims Act (FCA) violations has received coverage by the Bloomberg BNA Health Care Fraud Report and American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA). The hospital was alleged to have violated the FCA through fraudulent billing for outpatient therapy services provided to Medicare beneficiaries. On January 23, 2015, the federal district court granted our motion to dismiss the fraudulent billing claims on the grounds that the relator had failed to adequately plead the underlying falsity of claims or that any fraudulent scheme resulted in submission of false claims to federal payors. Our team was Courtney Bumpers, Matt Curley, and Brian Roark.

Articles covering this decision are available in the Bloomberg BNA pdf below and the AHLA website (login required).
