WakeMed's Medicare settlement with feds would allow confidential reports
U.S. District Judge Terrence Boyle did not mince words last month when offering his opinion of a proposed settlement of false Medicare billing hashed out between WakeMed and federal prosecutors. The proposal effectively would put the Raleigh hospital on probation for two years, but it was a curious sort of probation: There would be no reports back to the judge, as is typical for criminal cases, and no input from the public. An auditor would monitor WakeMed?s behavior, but the reports would be confidential.
