U.S. ex rel. McFeeters v. Northwest Hospital

We successfully represented Northwest Medical Center (Tucson, Arizona) as lead counsel in an FCA lawsuit alleging that Northwest improperly billed Medicare for outpatient therapy services through failure to document the exact number of minutes of therapy provided to patients. The federal district court dismissed this case on the grounds that the complaint did not satisfy the pleading requirements of Rule 9(b) or plead the underlying falsity of the claims at issue.
