Manchester (CT) Memorial to settle Medicare overbilling case

Hartford Courant, November 26, 2008

Manchester Memorial Hospital has became the sixth hospital in Connecticut to agree to settle allegations of overcharging the federal government for some cancer treatments. The hospital will pay $712,166 to settle claims stemming from overbilling the Medicare program for intravenous treatments from 2000-04. Medicare allowed payment for one unit of infusion therapy and chemotherapy for each patient visit but the hospital often billed the program for two to nine units.
